Every morning I drive the kids to school and this morning was no different than any other... until turning on to the street the school resides on....
Now I have seen some things in my time but this was a first.; A gentleman was playing a flute whilst driving.; I am often amazed at the activities some people pair with driving.; Like...
Mustache trimming - What are these men thinking?; You have a pair of sharp little scissors near your face.; Maybe the thought of doing a little cosmetic surgery while they are at it appeals to them?;Men shaving - both with an electric razor and even one gentleman with shaving cream on his face and a regular razor.; (I still wonder how he rinsed between strokes)Brushing teeth - Again, I wonder about the rinsing and spit.; (Not that I really want to find out)
Women putting on makeup - And I do mean the entire process.; I am especially in awe of the women who don't poke themselves in the eye with their mascara wands.; Or rip their eyelashes off completely with the eye lash curler when they come to an abrupt halt.; And let's not forget the eyeliner pencils.; Lipstick up a nostril or bozo the clown mishaps.;Eating while driving - I don't mean the hamburger or french fries kind.; I've seen people with a bowl and a spoon.; Or bowl and fork.
Blowing one's nose - (with both hands) Ok.; The husband has done this.; At least until he was squealed on by the kids.
Cleaning glasses - I sometimes wonder just how myopic these people are while they are driving without their prescription lenses.
Cell Phones - This definitely gets at the very least annoying, at the most very dangerous.; And yes, I have been a guilty party of this one.; My next car is going to have one of those hands free thingys.Texting - My eldest was recently busted on this offense.; A clear lack of good, common sense.
GPS adjustments - While these things are quite handy and I would be lost without mine (pun intended), putting in a street address while driving is just the ticket to not arriving at your destination... at least not on time.
Grooming hair - I have seen this mostly on military bases where the women have to have their hair up when in uniform.; Yet there is also plenty of people who brush and comb whilst looking into the rear view mirror at themselves.
Getting dressed - Or undressed as the case may be.;
The playing of the flute though, was a first for me.; I wonder if anyone else has ever seen that before?; I wonder if his radio was dead?; For sure his hamster was....
