How about at the occasional frantic shopper at the grocery store, the toe-tapping customer filling their gas at the gas station, or even the parent that appears to be in complete chaos at little league games?
Five days a week, my wife and I start our day by going to the gym. The 630 AM departure always gives us an awesome view of the sun rise and really makes me thankful for my lifestyle.
