Left Turns

I am a sucker. I am easily influenced by popular media: television programs, music, movies (heck yeah on movies), and sadly - television commercials. However, on this particular occasion I have not been influenced to go out and buy a Nissan Pathfinder. But a commercial of theirs has persuaded me to try something new, and completely pointless, this weekend. I just witnessed a commercial in which some young chap was yammering on endlessly about the possibilities of discovery when one chooses to drive their Nissan by only taking left turns....or something to that effect. To be honest, I zoned out after the first few utterances. But the idea did stick with me. I have decided that this Saturday (for I need a day that is empty and full of potential), barring foul weather or a hot date with a young femme fatale, I shall embark on a Left Turns Only adventure. (Actually, going straight is also allowed.) I generally park on the street - so I shall start my journey by heading due east on Longview St and continuing until I must turn left. This procedure will be repeated until I start getting scared or bored; at which time I will abandon the left turn rule and head home. I'm sure the stories will be glorious - so be sure to stay tuned for updates.
