A foggy drive to work

When I woke up this morning and peeked through the window, I was greeted with a very thick layer of fog outside the house. It was already a little past 7 and I needed to get ready for work. The temperature was surprisingly comfortable (thanks to the centralized heating system), so I unceremoniously stepped into the shower. I don’t have anything against people who do not take shower everyday in the winter time but I just don’t feel like going out of the house without feeling fresh. Besides, I already feel privileged now that I’m in the U.S., I don’t have to bear with taking a shower in cold water since we can always use hot water here. I could remember the times back in the Philippines when “taking a bath” as early as 4:30 A.M. is such a pain because the water is damn cold. Thank God life has changed! Today, I only had milk with K cereal for breakfast, not because I am on a diet or something but obviously, it’s easy to prepare and I didn’t have the luxury of time to cook something fancy. When I was ready to go, my next concern is driving in a very thick fog. I haven’t done it before but I’ll have to do it if I want to be at work on time. So off I went. At first, I was nervous but actually, it wasn’t that bad. When you look at the fog from a distance, you don’t see anything but when you’re right into it, there’s visibility. I just had to be extra careful and attentive all the way to work. I got to the bank safe and I know this is just one of the many obstacles I’m going to face as far as my driving in the winter time is concerned.

i like taking a warm shower too even when it's cold outside unlike in pinas where you have to boil water first if you want the water to be a little warm. anyways, got a tag for you. hope you don't mind. :)
