A blog that was supposed be made up of bits about cab rides and blurbs about beauty products but, instead, is about other things.


Reading in Cabs With Boys*

"A bus's circular steering wheel is not only larger but is set at an angle of incidence more horizontal than any taxi, private car or police cruiser's wheel I have seen and the driver turns the wheel with a broad all-body motion which is resemblant of someone's arm sweeping all the material off a table or surface in a sudden fit of emotion."

David Foster Wallace, from "Philosophy and the Mirror of Nature," page 184 in Oblivion.

*A new segment in which I read things, find the word "taxi," and then reprint bits here.
