Turns out I don’t have to drive to work on Thursday. Excellent!
(Sometimes we have to bring in things that are hard to carry/extremely heavy/very bulky. It turns out that today, not Thursday, was that day. Irony very slightly mitigated.)
When we do drive, we ride in together. Normally we also ride home together, but I have a very late meeting. So late that it starts when my bus stops running. If I took the Metro bus, I probably wouldn’t get home until 10, which is not conducive to waking up at 5:30 tomorrow. Not if I want to be conscious at work.
