Missed Connections: Sending Signals Edition

does anyone out there also appreciate the beauty of the turn signal?
such a quiet call for gentle attention. with a heartbeat rhythm. personally, my favorite view is from the rear (the luminous red ones, so like lips), though from inside, those green arrows illuminating the dash, with their aching hollow plunk, punctuating that patient longing cowboy tune, 200 miles into a 300-mile post-meridian delivery- now that's an compelling second.
          & and in summer, a hand turn signal, for a right turn? I'd stop the world & melt for you.

          just saying. 

When people neglect to use their turning signal, it bothers me. A pet peeve since I first learned to drive and probably well before then, it's always irritated me. So when I came across this missed connections post, I was thrown off. I never considered the possibility that someone could be turned on by turning signals. Probably because most people aren't. This is actually really creepy and kind of funny. It's been awhile since I came across a post that was worthy of a share but I think this one is a keeper. If you ever drive in Pittsburgh, remember the signal you're sending might be taken in a different direction. I know I'll never look at that little blinking light the same way again.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
