610 "Topflop" Construction

Here are some random Friday night full moon thoughts. 

Being stuck at home so long, I think we've heard it all so what's another wierd write up? Right? Who cares?

Parents who've had to teach at home, my heart goes out to you. Women facing abuse every day, I pray for you. The desperate who turn to a life of crime to make ends meet. I'm aware and understand completely. With the internet up and over the top, we are completely fragmented. So, hence. Be it work. 

Yet we're all aware of the same things. Politics and a pandemic made everyone FINALLY pay attention. Both are poisonous. The Election.

Streaming. News. Life Hacks. Everyone's now LIVE. Clamoring to go viral. You know what that means now and for the future? Chasing cool is a competition where everyone wants to be an Olympian.

We're all in this together. COVID-19. pandemic. Life is suddenly tagging and branding. Cooling and catfishing. Tik-Tok till you're ill. Scrolling past me is the new backstab. Irrelevance is an insult. Such a strange way to evolve as a culture. And the pace is unreal. 

Also, freeways are getting stranger in design. I felt like I was driving through a hula hoop. There's a new low overhang northbound on the Southwest Freeway into a West Loop South northbound underpass. - I was a traffic reporter for a minute too. That underpass is a toeflop.

And who the F is "TOEFLOP?" A tagger w a bad name. That one is on the railroad across I-10 inbound from the 610 West Loop and is annoying the F out of me.
