Dear Man in the Avalanche Truck on the Freeway Yesterday:

Thank you. Thank you for having three dogs in your truck with you. You were in the lane right beside me when we were standing still in traffic during an irregular time of day. Thank you for letting your three dogs' heads hang out of the window, in the rain, allowing my daughter to be entertained the entire 28 minutes we inched four miles on that stretch of freeway. Thank you for offering her endless joy at shouting "puppy" every time our vehicles moved past one another. Because, after I had exhausted all of our treat supply, Elmo book supply, and peek-a-boo playing supply, you and your (wet) dogs saved the day for my daughter. I just wanted to thank you.
