Slow going

I can't seem to get into the previous post to update it, so I've got to create a new one. Appropriate hiccup, because I've experienced plenty of them already.

Two accidents, one construction zone and one pothole repair delay later, I'm still a few miles north of Richmond. At this rate, I should get to Viera in time to watch the opening ceremony of the 2014 Winter Games.

While stuck in the latest jam, I witnessed the guy in front of me rear-end the car in front of him because he was looking down at his BlackBerry and not the road. (Note to self: Don't check phone while driving.)

Oh, and then upon pulling into a Popeye's just off I-95, I was informed they were out of tenders and had to settle for nuggets instead. Oh, the humanity.

At least I'm not the only one drawing the short straw today. While driving, I was informed Brian Bruney lost his arbitration case to the Nats. So he'll only make $1.5 million this year instead of $1.8 million. It's a cruel world, I know.

OK, back to the road. Here's hoping the next leg is smoother than the first one.

Every time I head south on 95, life gets much better after the 295 Richmond bypass starts. Good luck.

I was at a Popeye's once where they said they were out of chicken. Not tenders, not nuggets, not drumsticks. Out of chicken.

And she was standing in front of what appeared to be a wall of chicken warming under the red lights.
