I’ve been in the car for hours every day for the past 5 days or so. I have no doubt that I’ve been in the car way too much lately. In fact, I think I‘m a certifiable Car-Zombie at this point. But, perhaps you’re wondering whether you have yet passed that “Too Much Car Time” threshold and have turned into a Car-Zombie yourself. Here are some signs that you definitely have.
You might be a Car-Zombie if…
If you hear a loud noise coming from another room and you attempt to check out its source with your rearview mirror, you might be a car-zombie.
If your kids come into your office arguing and you tell them that if they don’t knock it off you will pull over and settle it for them, you might be a car-zombie.
If seeing a moth in the hall makes you think “Slug bug,” and gives you the sudden urge to punch someone, you might be a car-zombie.
If your son comes into the kitchen and asks what time lunch is, and you tell him that you’ll stop as soon as you see a place with easy on and off ramps, you might be a car-zombie.
If your daughter says that she is going upstairs to her room and you tell her to use the loo first because you are not stopping again until dinner, you might be a car-zombie.
If your sons are in the playroom arguing over whose turn it is with the Lego peg-legged pirate and you tell them that they have to switch every time you pass a McDonald’s, you might be a car-zombie.
If you dribble tea on your shirt while chatting with friends in your dining room, and you immediately ask one of your kids to “check the bag for napkins,” you might be a car-zombie.
If you are constantly scanning whatever room you are in for the letters Q, W, Y, & Z to try to win The Alphabet Game, you might be a car-zombie .
If your daughter mentions she is going to visit the loo and you reminder her to use her foot to open the door so she won’t get germs from the 1000 people who used it before her on her hands, you might be a car-zombie.
If you try to roll down the living room window, you might be a car-zombie.
Laugh Out Loud!
