drive like a bus

On those complicated loopy 4-lane 65 mile per hour freeways I drive like a Concord bus driver: middle lane, 70 mph. Steady. Wall to wall cars, tin cans with people inside, hurtling forward on strips of asphalt; I keep my bubble of safety. I let people cut in front of me, I leave plenty of room. Merge. I stay calm and feel generous.

Yeah, did that for 5 hours going down to Connecticut. Well, I took lots of breaks. Stopped and enjoyed the sunshine. Took me only 3 1/2 hours coming home: just one quick BR break. I drove like a bus driver.
