More on Underpass Mary

I’m sure that like everyone that lives near the 90/94 Fullerton exit (or has to use that exit to get on the Kennedy) is aware of the salt stain that puportedly looks like the image of Mary. Monday this week it took me 20 minutes to go from my house to the exit – the trip normally takes 5 minutes at most – because of the salt stain. On the one hand I was really irritated. I don’t believe in seeing the image of Christ or Mary in things like a slice of bologna or a grilled cheese sandwhich.

On the other hand, the optimistic side of me thinks “How nice that people have enough faith to see something wonderful in ordinary things like a salt stain on an underpass wall.” I even glanced over at it as I was stopped in traffic trying to turn left onto the Kennedy. Truthfully, it didn’t look like anything to me and I was there a looooong time (because everyone else was gaping at it too).

This morning, there was STILL a crowd. I think tomorrow in anticipation, I should leave at 5:30 am instead of my usual 6:00 am.

    Leave early? What a fantastic excuse to be late!
