We’ll be on the road all day today.
Some people complain about being stuck in the car all day, but I say, “Let’s focus on the ‘positives!’”
14 Great Things About Being Stuck In the Car All Day
No need to nag children to do their chores.
Playing “Guess Which Side The Next Nose-Picker Will Drive By On.” (Why are nose pickers always in such a hurry? Is there some sort of Nose Pickers Anonymous meeting they’re all late for? I hope they don’t greet each other with a handshake!)
The radio changes stations, and thus types of music, format, and even language, all by itself to broaden your auditory horizons for your listening pleasure.
Cows! You get to see lots and lots of cows!
Snapping tons of great “Look How Funny You Looked Sleeping Sitting Up” pictures. Very useful for blackmailing teens at a later date!
Listening to 3 of your children play Name That Mountain! (“Is that Mt Hood?” ”I don’t know.” ”Shut up. I’m trying to sleep.” ”I think that’s Mt. Hood.” ”Is that Mt. Hood?” ”Shut. Up. I’m trying to sleep!” ”No, dummy, Mt. Hood is in Oregon.” ”We are in Oregon, dummy!” ”SHUT UP!”)
Playing Clean Bathroom Russian Roulette.
Pulling up to Fast Food Row, asking what everyone wants to eat, and hearing one kid holler “Spaghetti!”
Doing isometrics while you drive (or is that just me?).
Fielding a team for the How Long Can You Hold It? marathon.
Trying to eat a salad without a fork (Why do they always forget to give us a fork? Why do I always forget to check before we drive away?).
Having your kids bond over a game of I’m Not Touching You! or Where Did That Go When I Dropped It?
Trying to walk at rest stops while your legs are asleep.
Pulling into your driveway and being tempted to let everyone keep sleeping in the car for the rest of the night.
You know, now that I look at it, I think that’s 15. Have I mentioned that I have an advanced math degree?
