The sky has been extremely dark over South Dartmouth the last several days and that makes things rather gloomy all around.  Haven’t you ever noticed that people tend to be a bit more grouchy and their dispositions are not as bright as when we’ve had a good stretch of weather?  I know that I have.  I’ll give you an example of what I mean.  Yesterday, Tuesday 9 October 2012, I needed to go to the supermarket to pick up a few items.  I very cautiously entered the parking lot of the Stop n Shop and made my way to find a space.  I signaled and turned right into a free space.  I noticed that the car in front of me had an elderly woman in the driver’s seat and she had her head titled downward.  I put my car into park and turned the key and removed it from the ignition.  I continued to look at this elderly woman wondering if she was alright.  I opened my car door to exit and all of a sudden she looked up and proceeded to drive right into my car.  Fortunately, there was no damage.  This is when it got interesting.  My senior citizen friend began ranting and raging that she couldn’t drive forward (apparently, he reverse option is broken!) and was waving her arms telling me that I was so wrong to take the space as she was ready to leave.  People are now looking at this scene in the parking and of course, I had just come from the hospital and so was dressed in a black suit with clerical collar.  Picture clear enough for you.  If the woman whose day I obviously ruined yesterday is reading this please note: I did not single out that particular parking space to terrorize you!  Let’s pray that the sun will soon return as I think that we are all suffering from a lack of vitamin D!!!
