Me being me, and me knowing me, I keep thinking I'm going to do this someday:

Most jobs I've had in Portland, I've reached by bus. Sometimes I drive. (I'll drive to work today, is why that's on my mind.) What I haven't done, and hope I won't do, though I can totally picture myself doing it, is this:

I'd drive to work, park as I should, work as I should, then get on autopilot when I leave work and head not to my parking spot but to the bus stop.

Seriously, I've worried about doing this since my Vesta job downtown, 11 years ago.

I like to think that I'd figure out I'M DOING IT WRONG once I'm only a few stops away, but still, maybe one of these days I'll get home from work, look at the apartment building's parking area, and think "Dude, where's my car?" And then, I hope, I'll laugh and get back to a bus to get back to my vehicle. (Or maybe just watch Dude, Where's My Car? again.)
