Yesterday while driving on Lake Shore Drive, taking in the cliche but apparent beauty of the city just waking up on a lazy Sunday morning, I spotted a new gunmetal grey Ferrari cruising beside me in the right lane, not trying to race or pass me, just cruising. While in my opinion any Ferrari sighting is worth mentioning, I mention this one only because for once, the driver inside the vehicle had a look of pure joy, not the usually “I’m so cool, pissing contest” smile that so many a sports car driver seems to pin upon their faces. He was relaxed and joyful and my heart actually ached with gratitude that that man enjoyed driving that car so much. He took the Belmont exit and I continued to wonder about the joy of driving such a car. Turning onto Clark Street,thinking about weather Cole would look as happy driving a Ferrari (he would) I spotted a scared looking small child of 4 or 5yrs walking across the street all by herself! My gracious heart disappeared in an instant, I felt outraged and angered that anyone would be so oblivious as to let their child walk unattended on a busy city street let alone cross one! Upon closer inspection I realized that the scared girl was a woman, the woman was a midget, and her parents were probably still oblivious that she was walking across a busy city street all by herself.
