Ok - so many of you already know that I am not a good driver. Some of you may have experienced it first hand. For that I am, as the Catholic in me recalls, 'heartily sorry.'
I get distracted too easily and I am just generally bored with the whole thing. Nevertheless, since I drive about 10 hours a week with commuting and kid stuff, I have some coping mechanisms.
What are four things you like to do while you drive?
- Listen to audio books. Right now as an homage to Matt's trip to Vegas, I am listening to Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. It's a classic and Ron McLarty is a great voice for Thompson and Oscar Acosta.
- Talk on the phone. Yah I know I shouldn't but I most DO use my Bluetooth headset, so it's not SO bad.
- Look for photo opportunities. That CR-V swerving to the side of the road ahead of you might just be me reaching for my camera to shoot a sunset.
- Listen to sports talk or NPR. I don't have an iPod or iPhone and I have given up on commercial radio for the most part, so this is my last resort.
Have a great weekend!
