This morning, I sat in my car, fussing at myself for not remembering to start the car so that it could warm up before heading to school. I can remotely start my car with the My Chevrolet app, so it’s not like this task is hard to do. As a result, it was positively arctic in the car as I waited for the thick layer of frost to disappear from the windshield. I fiddled with the volume on the radio and scrolled through emails on my phone as I shivered.
Finally, my windshield was clear enough and I started backing out of the driveway. Suddenly, I slammed on the brakes and mentally smacked myself as I realized that I had missed a golden opportunity to slice about the intricate patterns on frost on my windshield. The designs of frost that had obscured my view were beautiful and I wished that I had taken a picture of the patterns and shared the artistry. Instead of reading email, I could have drafted the post on my phone while I waited and it would have been a fun post to create and share!
