A Basque in Boise

Random

Tuesday, and already run down. I guess staying up chatting with friends until late last night didn’t help, and then all of this stuff in my head that just won’t go away. Among the mess though, an image from last night keeps coming up. I left the Museum after Basque language class and took 9th Street towards the airport on my way to Esther’s. The light at University Drive turned red. This is Idaho, so frequently the car on your left or the one on your right will be a big-ass truck. I’ll buy one some day, and because I’m a girl I won’t have to worry about the “compensation” issue, so the bigger the better. Like the red F-350 from yesterday, ready to turn towards BSU. I always stare; the sheer size of these things never ceases to amaze me. Besides, they’re usually driven by handsome, rugged-looking dudes. But not last night. I couldn’t help but smile when I saw the short, fragile-looking white-haired grandma sitting at the wheel, waiting like me for the light to turn green.

Thanks for passing by: ↓

    You just traveled in time, Henar, to see yourself in the future, driving a big-ass truck. Remember it, many years from now, when a smallish car with a dent from a recent run-in with a parked babysitter car stops by you on a red light. That will be YOU in the past. The old you will look at the young you and think “why did I trouble myself with such stuff as X, and Y and Z? So, THIS old lady (that would be me) tells you: seize the day in the small car and let your troubles abandon your mind!

    After contacting the above commenter and asking her to further explain what the hell she’s talking about, I would like to inform my readers that all she meant was: “Seize the day, boluda!”

    My question here: did the big ass truck have a dent? And furthermore, how did the old lady look like? Good, bad? I like the theory that Diana has in mind for you?
