But some things are impossible to ignore. Today the kids and I were escaping the house for a few hours. I pulled up behind this car at an intersection. Initially it caught my eye because it is the same make and model as Dave’s car but in orange. (He really wanted orange, but it was not one of the color options for the hybrid.) Then I noticed the license plate. It felt like a little nudge or a wink. I don’t know. Something. It made me pause and wonder if somehow, somewhere he was sending me a little message.
