I have no problems making fun of myself, and this part of the forum is dead so here it goes you can have a laugh at my expense. My Mom sends me the article last week that said the Japanese drink what amounts to 5 4 OZ glasses of water (160ml) every morning as soon as they wake up and then don't eat or drink anything else for 45 mintues. It listed all the health benefits they enjoy because of it. I thought I would give it a shot, not like being very hydrated in August is going to hurt anyway. I have about a 1.5 hour drive to work. Yesterday I barely made it and was doing the pp dance on the way in the door. Today I get to the construction part of 121 where 121 and business 121 merge and my teeth are about to float. I had already decided I might need to make a "pit stop" at the conv store at the next light Well I get there and traffic is backed up, must be a wreck somewhere up the road. I'm sitting there dying and traffic isn't moving. I start considering jumping the curb and driving down to where they are building the road, no one is down there and lots of weeks to somewhat hide me. Once I considered that, there was no way I was going to be able to sit for no telling how long until I can turn at the light. So I jump the curb, drive through the weeds, down the hill and jump out, and relieve myself hidden behind the door, I don't even think I took my truck out of gear (you'll understand why it didn't move in a sec). Felling pretty damn good about myself I drive up until I can get to a spot to get back on the road and see what looks like just a little sand, well it hasn't rained in a week or so so I thought nothing of just continuing accross. Bad idea, it wasn't sand, it was mud, deep mud, my truck just sinks. I spend about 20 minutes rocking it back and forth progressing about a foot back each try until I'm finally out. I then go around it, and jump the curb again where there will eventually be an offramp right in front of a bunch of Colony cops, this is where the wreck that was holding up traffic was. They all give me the eye and I don't know its because of where I was coming from or the fact that my truck is covered in mud. I didn't care if they gave me a ticket, I had to go that bad. They didn't, just stared me down as I drove by, flinging mud everywhere.
