Saving Me From Myself

I know it’s stupid, but I can’t stop. At traffic lights, stop lights, even intermittently during stop-and-go traffic… I text.
For at least a year I’ve been telling people I hope it becomes illegal to text and drive, because then I wouldn’t do it. And, thanks to a chock-a-block special session of the legislature, it finally is.
So no more sneaking in quick "I’m running 10 mins late" messages on the straightaway for me. I’m a law-abiding kinda person. I’m going to blithely leave unexamined the fact that I used to do something stupid and dangerous, fully aware that it was stupid and dangerous, just because I could. The important thing, tra la la, is that I don’t do it any more.
