Thursday: The roads are covered with a ribbon of those unmistakable and huge tractor trailer trucks, carrying their loads from one end of the country to the other. “Roll on 18 Wheeler” or “Convoy” might work.
This also is the day that the volume of traffic accident reports tends to increase. In many cases, a truck has either creamed another vehicle or jackknifed. Such accidents are frequently caused by clueless drivers of the smaller and not so smart vehicles by pulling directly in front of the truck, which brings the laws of physics to center stage. If the three second rule of keeping as many car lengths between vehicles is important for cars, think how much more weight is in that truck hurdling at you, breaks notwithstanding.
Friday: “Dazed and Confused” is an excellent tune for Friday. How else can we explain the perplexed mental state of drivers who breeze to work on nearly deserted roads but have to crawl home in bumper-to-bumper traffic at the end of the day? Where did all those people and cars come from? Where were they in the morning?
Saturday: This is the day to declare your freedom from the daily grind. Jump on a Harley or any other two-wheel vehicle you feel comfortable riding. The perfect tune, reflecting the song in your heart, the dust and fumes in your nostrils and the wind in your hair (unless your noggin resembles a cue ball and you must wear a bandana or cap) is “Born to be Wild.”
The choice of music depends on your personal preferences and the only things which remain constant in this experiment are the days of the week.
