I didn't go to work today. I have a perfectly valid reason. Too damn scary on the 97. It's like a washboard road covered in ice today. When the road is crappy and scary to me, I get all wigged out at work and am in kind of non-stop constant state of freaked out about driving. That, in turn, makes me extremely tired and then the drive home is just me at redline terrified. Full-blown panic attack for 75 miles. Good times!
So yeah, screw that. It just isn't a good idea to drive on Valium, either.
