It took 19minutes and 23seconds exactly from the moment I put my car into reverse in my driveway to the instant I pulled into my parking spot at the office. I know this because 19:23 is how long the epic John Bonham drum solo Moby Dick is on Led Zeppelin's How The West Was Won.

Now mind you, it was close. There was some oaf lugging around a cherrypicker with the name of the electric company stencilled over the industrial yellow dull paint in front of me when I got off the Interstate. And while I was on the Interstate there was a motorcyclist in front of me doing 50... 50!!! I repeated "you're going to ruin this for me" rhymically to the 12-armed sasquachian thump of live Zeppelin wonderment. Had I not made it in time, well I don't know what I would've done. But one things for sure, it would've been profoundly stupid in retrospect.
