  • I'm tired of hearing that skipping meals causes starvation mode. Sick. And. Tired. of it.

I looked and the lady inside is looking down and holding her iphone and sliding her finger on the screen. I hurried past and she was still looking down when I looked in my rear view mirror. She had her eyes off the road so long it's a wonder she didn't hit the car next to her. I attempted to wave at her and get her attention as I went by but she wouldn't look up. I'm afraid to do much lane splitting now. I want to get a huge truck horn installed so I can blast at people who are folding laundry, reading newspapers and texting while driving (I've seen all these things.)
      folding laundry??? WTF?

                  Last time I drove through Knoxville, I was nearly run over by one of those danged hillbillies who had her iPhone or whatever it was propped up against her steering wheel and she was texting away furiously or playing Angry Birds or something and only glancing at the road, which she was swerving all over. What a menace.

                          I was driving over a freeway bridge and happened to look over to the car next to me. One hand on the steering wheel, a woman in her seventies was clutching a blue-and-white toothbrush in her other and going at her teeth furiously.

                          Really? Brushing your teeth as you're driving?!??!?

                          I guess she swallows.

                            • GOTD: gluten in a tea bag. Seriously.

                              The fault is my own for purchasing said teas--they were supposed to be reminiscent of holiday baked goods (sugar cookies, gingerbread etc), and tea seemed like a pretty harmless indulgence. Get home, open box: tea smells good, just like a cookie. Read box: CONTAINS GLUTEN. Read ingredients, thinking they couldn't possibly have just put a cookie in a tea bag: Roasted barley (among other things). Brew tea anyway, thinking it's worth a try after all: tea smells awful. As in, didn't even try it. Took leftover water and brewed a black fruit tea that's been languishing in my cupboard for years--smells divine.

                              Moral of the story: tea masquerading as another food group, especially one you don't eat anymore, is probably a bad idea.
