I admit it: I harbor a secret desire to be a truck driver. Don't ask me why. I think it's because it's something that no one would expect me to have. I love to surprise people - to shock them - to challenge the norm and their expectation.
There's something romantic about being a truck driver - the gasoline smell, the CB radio, the greasy truck stop food. There's a whole trucker culture that has always fascinated me ever since I had to spend a month with my dad, travelling cross country in a big rig. A CDL just seems so... Smokey and the Bandit.
Just don't call me Hot Pants.
