I’ve been to Manchester today, had a coaching seminar which was great, it’s just been a long day. The traffic heading back to Surrey is, as predicted awful at 6pm so my satnav is taking me on some weird and wonderful backroads to avoid this.
I need to pull over, but there is nowhere, I’m on country backroads with high hedges and angry commuters everywhere, if I just stop I will get beeped by angry people, I don’t want to get beeped whilst I’m dying. This is it, I’m going to die in my car whilst getting beeped by angry commuters who don’t understand and it will be on my death certificate, cause of death “choking on nothing”, this sucks.
I try and clear my throat, I try yoga breathing and eventually I managed to get back to something normal, my eyes are streaming with tears, my knuckles are white but I think I’m going to make it.
I spend the rest of my journey in silence pondering things, mostly the fact I’m sad I’ve got to the age where weird shit like this will happen to me. Is that it now? Can I expect this kind of thing to happen a lot ?
