Whichever way

The older I get the more I realize that Robert Frost had it right.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

That’s from The Road Not Taken, and it could be read as taking the less typical path is the better way to go about things, but I don’t think so anymore. I think all he’s saying is for him it was best to take the one he took, and that’s what makes the difference. It’s about doing what you wish to do, and seeing where it takes you. The deciding factor isn’t the path you take, it’s that you take one. I personally like the one he took, but that’s another story entirely.

I drove down one of these one-ways late after work one night, and a cop thought I was drunk. It was one of those moments where you have driven the area hundreds and hundreds of times, and yet the one time you do something wrong there’s law enforcement ready to pounce on you. He let me go, backwards, as I was already headed.
