Misc....

Mom discovered my blog and read 'Driving Skills' from September. She said I forgot to mention the funniest line, which (to her) was when she told me she was considering getting a car, and I replied that it'd better be made of rubber. Hummm....

In People magazine, I learned the singer Usher called 911 when his car was keyed (he blamed his soon-to-be-ex-wife). I'm pretty sure you don't call 911 when your car gets keyed. Maybe 411 - if you're Usher. His imminent ex says she got tons of flack for being "So much older" than he is. Yeah, all of seven years! That's such a disgrace. Men have married much younger woman than that for centuries and no one bats an eye -- weird...and what about this so-called 'cougar' epidemic? Doesn't jibe...

Mom told me dad packed frozen dinners in his suitcase for his 3 days to DC. Surely you jest. I cannot believe he did this. For one they'd be totally unthawed and ***eeewwwwww*** by the time he arrives at the hotel, and I'm pretty sure uneatable. My brother says that must be why it took forever for dad to get through the airport security line -- they must have been trying to figure out what to do with that frozen food in his carry-on. (Hopefully they confiscated it). He borrowed my rolling suitcase for the trip. Gross.

Oh, tha's funny! If he checked the luggage it might stay frozen in the cargo hold.

If all that I read about Usher in the mags is true, I sure as hell don't like him. Oh god, is that true about your Dad and the frozen dinners? Hilarious! I like your Dad!

I'm still trying to wrap my brain around the frozen dinner idea...WHY? It's not like there isn't food in the airport. Glad you conquered the bug quickly. Ben is mainly sacked out on the couch watching tv. His fever perks up every 6 hours right on cue with his Motrin intake. So far, not to bad. Have a great day. Holly at lifelaughlatte.blogspot.com

Dads do some unbelievable things.

I've always liked younger men for the simple reasons that in general women tend to live longer than men in general, and the women on both sides of my family specifically tend to live for freaking ever. I come from a long line of widows.

Frozen dinners? They don't even taste that good. How funny!

My husband claims he once asked a girl to dinner and a movie. When he picked her up he handed her a frozen dinner to eat in the car on the way there. No, he never tried that with me.

I have heard of people strapping food to their car engine so that it cooks while they drive. Perhaps your dad was trying the air passenger version.

I'm always afraid my mother will discover my blog. By the way, don't tell any of my family about my blog.

Hilarious randomness! Love it!
