Commutertainment

3 Jun

I’m learning to make the most of my often 90 minute (one-way) commute to and from work. Some of my entertainment includes:

  • Challenging myself to drive with my left foot instead of my right one. I made it half-way and then forgot and resorted back. It’s harder than it sounds.
  • Double-daring myself to drive without AC when the thermometer said 100. I did it but was sweat-y.
  • Successfully retrieving my water cup from the passenger floor after it fell. I’m proud of my wheel action to convince my cup to come closer…closer…
  • Singing, torso dancing and pointing at other cars. I really love people’s reactions.
  • Actually trying to win radio station contests. I got through a few times but was never the winning caller. Still felt victory though – I’ve experienced a ton of “try your call again” messages.
  • Creating stories in my head about the people I see in other cars. I’ve married some, beat up others and felt really bad for many more.
  • Taking off my pantyhose. It. Was. Necessary. They were control top.

    My unsolicited opinions on this:
    1. Left foot driving could soon lead to finding out if the Nationwide Insurance Agent really does appear after you sing their jingle.
    2. Non air-condition vehciles in 100 degree heat may lead to adventures with HERO units after you pass out from heat stroke on the side of the road. 5 o’clock news here you come! #sweatysuperstar
    3. You deserve a commuter medal for retrieval of the cup. Such tactics are also useful when various/all items from your purse go flying after an unexpected use of the brakes.
    4. A youtube search of car dancing on 85 may also prove your a star! Mixed CD’s of rowdy songs can add to the rush hour fun 🙂
    5.I once won a cruise from Star 94 thanks to a rush hour drive. Dont stop Believing (also a great song for the ride!)
    6. You clearly are a love/hate type of person. Marriage or abuse, no middle line for you 🙂
    7. Panyhose should be regualted strictly to funeralal attire during summer months in the south. Survival people, it’s all about survival.
    8. Clearly I need an apostrophe intervention!
