Things I Learn While Driving

Today I learned (while rocking out) something interesting while driving home from Robin's. A few of us were hanging out, and then Julie & Robin were my two hot dates for the night - and they sure know how to show a girl a good time. There I was in the minivan full of dogs, rocking out to some Poison on the classic rock station. Uh... did I miss a few decades where the all-impressive hair bands of my youth became blooming CLASSIC ROCK??

I digress. While driving, I learned that I can still headbang over my steering wheel. I also learned that such action now makes me motion sick. Dude, and I used to be able to headbang down the highway with the best of them. Dismayed. Utterly dismayed.

I also learned while bouncing up and down in my seat like some sort of deranged hemorrhoidal Muppet that THAT also makes me motion sick. On the heels of those experiments I learned that evidently with the combination of dinner and exhaustion most extraneous movements of my head were just not going over very well at all.

Eventually I wound up turning it back to the country station so I could cry in my proverbial beer instead. Sedately, quietly, and blessedly less nauseated I sung along and thanked the churning wad of chicken Alfredo, bacon cheese fries, ranch dressing, salad, and chocolate cake for not making me pull off in the median to call dinosaurs.

Who says driving is boring?

You poor thing, motion sickness from rocking out. You can't be that old. I think that Poison kind of came after my youth.

I know, it's a tough life, right? LOL Poison was huge right around my high school graduation, and I hadn't realized that the days of GNR and Crue had passed into the realm of "Classic Rock". Last I heard Classic Rock was Zepplin. *sigh* But yeah, I could do without the motion sickness part.

It must have been some sort of karmic retribution for eating that pile of chocolate called "cake". ;-)

No doubt about it, I have been paying and paying and paying for it. I'm headed towards the bed and still vaguely queasy. Sure was guud though. hahaha

Dang, what dedicated bloggers! I was in bed sleeping off my gastric excesses (and the dogs may have been suffering too) while y'all were busy blogging and commenting on said blog! ;-)

P.S.Videos are downloading now, but given the age of that computer it will probably be later this afternoon before that process is complete!

Maybe so, but I'm just rolling out of bed for the second time. LOL!
