|"It didn't work for me,
So I took the next exit." <- I love this!
Cool poem Amber!
It didn't work for me,
So I took the next exit.

|what a relief for parallel roads without stop signs and exits that enter together ...|

|Wouldn't it be amazing
if you could just exit
every time you felt off balance;
instead of coming up with new ways that work
I think your turn signals would wear out. You sound very adaptive to me young lady as your following verses indicate. Facing challenges is what makes us stronger. Great realism. Patrick

|The world should have come fitted with a hand-brake so we all could stop it and get off when unbalance tries to take over.
Nobody walks balanced on uneven pavement with six inches high stilettos.

|Now this is what I call a Tar Baby! Many years ago, when I spent time in a recording studio, my sound engineer laid down a track for my narration. He looped the music for me to accomodate the length of the narrations, some went on for 3 minutes, some I spoke for twenty minutes. I instructed him to "center" the music, meaning to start the music and let it run a few seconds before my voice came in and do the same when I ended each narration, after I spoke my last word, the music should run the same amount of time it did at the beginning and then end. Know that recording studios are very expensive by the hour. On one of the selections, the music ended just a little second before my voice ended - how ironic that this happened because this particular selection I was reciting a prayer, so how appropriate it should be that to end it in silence turned out Great! So the sound engineer said we had a Tar Baby! An uneven surface. What to do about it? I said "Nothing! I am not paying for another two hours to do it again. When I got home, it was then that I realized that serendipity made the day, that this selection was "supposed" to have been this way. So, Amber, Uneven Pavement is not a stall tactic at all, nor a detour, it is a Tar Baby! Sooner or later we see that dreaded hot tar machine flipping tar on our car, we pull off to the side of the road and scream, "Tar Baby!"
