you guys: life is a highway.So if life is a highway, what can we learn from the highways of Missourah during rush hour?

I have never seen people use the brake so much in their entire life.
Need to get over? Brake.
See an exit ramp? Brake.
Went a mile over the speed limit? Brake.
Kids. Don't brake for life. Or brake your life for other people.
You charge on, you little rascals you.
Do your thang.
Pursue those dreams.
Missourah residents do this cute little thing where they full out stop at the top of a hill.
It's like I can hear them in their cars,
"But what's on the other side? We can't possibly know.
Let's go for it today. Don't stop.
Wait! STOP! I DON'T WANT TO KNOW WHAT'S ON THE OTHER SIDE!!"
And instantly you go from 60 to 0.
Don't let the unknown freak you out!
Don't spend hours of your life imaging the horrors that might happen,
they also might NOT happen!
And that kids, is all I've got for you. There are a few other metaphors about four lanes (four options of life!) and the 60 mph speed limit (don't be afraid to go fast!) but this is getting long. Guess it's a good thing I'm getting off this Missourah highway (get it? hint hint. hint hint.).
