It's my birthday.
I'm 35 today.
And I have no internet so I've been forced to come to the library and mooch off of their wireless (which they encourage, btw).
The first day of my next 35 years is not starting out very well.
|Consider this your official warning: THE ROADS ARE NOT SAFE!!|
Why, you ask? It's not because of the inexperienced teen-age drivers. It's not because of the old people who still feel they are capable of driving but, in fact, haven't had the capacity to drive for 10 years (Grandpa Grumpy was a prime example of this). It's not even because of the drunk drivers out there.
No, it's because of all the mothers on the road. The mothers who are speeding as fast as they can home from a soccer game because their baby is SCREAMING in the back seat. The mother who is reaching back to said baby and trying to stuff a binki in his/her mouth which is only ticking the baby off more. The mother who is trying to drive with the screaming baby and two boys who are arguing over whether or not YuGiOh and Pokemon are the same show. At the same time this mother is trying to remain calm by drinking a Diet Dr. Pepper and changing CDs to something a little more soothing.
Srsly, as I was driving home last night with my perfectly behaved children in the back riding along in silence and my hands at 10 and 2, I saw all of this occurring in the mini-van next to me. It was disturbing to say the least. ::ahem::

Me: Tbone, how many boogers do you think you eat a day?
Tbone: All of them.
That last one makes me remember how funny kids are though.
