couldn't sleep

This morning I woke up at around 3:15 am from a bad dream (really terrible! so scary that there's no WAY I put the details in the blog). I rolled around for the next fifteen minutes or so trying to sleep more....but then I just got up and put on a pot of coffee. I was in my cab by 3:50 and I gotta tell you, it's nice to have 8 hours of work in before noon. Whenever you suckers can't fall back asleep early in the morning, it's just wasted time, but I get to make money. Not too shabby.

I almost had my first trip to Baltimore today. My last fare of the morning was a couple latin men dressed up in drag with suitcases on their way to Union Station to go to Baltimore. One of them (the better looking one...?) had a sequined t-shirt that emphasized his/her "Apple Bottom" and the other was wearing a shirt that showed off a lot of cleavage. I don't really get how that happens, actually, but it was there. Anyway, I think they liked that I speak Spanish, and so as we got onto 395 toward the 14th St Bridge, they asked me how much it would cost them to go all the way to Baltimore. I really really wish I had said 100 or 120 instead of 140 or 120, because they lost interest at the 140. Coulda had a great trip! I didn't really sell it, what a moron.

Also, whoever had money on Emily Moffett being my first completely random passenger that I actually know, you're a big winner. I think it freaked her out to see me driving.


  1. I'm going to guess your bad dream was that you became a fiscal conservative after you FINALLY realized the REAL impact of the TAX AND SPEND-SPEND-SPEND policy of our federal government.

  2. Hello - it's me, Emily! I heard about this post randomly Saturday night from a friend of yours from high school!

    I was not freaked out to see you driving! I would say I was more pleasantly surprised. Hopefully you are driving the next time I go home sick in the middle of a work day and am too lazy to walk home from the metro! :)
