Honking Horns . . .
After our visit to Washington, DC Lynn has come up with a new theory. People honk horns at intersections "just because". We have never heard so much horn honking in all our life . . .and coming from where we come from, a honking horn is to alert you of impending danger. Apparently here, it is to let you know they are now at the intersection as well as you, and in case you might be looking elsewhere than the light, to remind you to keep your eyes ahead. He was REALLY irritated today by someone honking their horn at him the millisecond the light became green . . .I mean, really, for goodness sake, even I hadn't had a chance to tell him it wasn't going to get any greener. Geeeez . . ..
