~Being the Mother of a boy, last from son up...to son down~

In a hurry to go no where....

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

Let me tell you about my morning drive to work. My morning drive takes me about 35 minutes and half of that time is spent on a backwood 2 lane roads(complete with curves, deer, tractors and school buses just to slow things down even more...)

This morning I was be-boppin on down the road, sipping my coffee and singing "Smile" right along with Uncle Kracker...ahhhhh...it was gonna be a good morning...until all the sudden....out of no where I have a huge @$* truck about to eat "my ole Kentucky home" (thats my license plate incase you were wondering) so anyhow, I am going 5 miles over the speed limit and on a back road...I was NOT going to speed up! Since it is a huge truck I assumed it was a very impatient man behind the wheel...boy was i wrong! Finally when I guess they had enough of my "by the law" driving skills they decided to pass me.......when to my surprise it was a WOMEN...complete with rollers in her hair!!!!!!

I don't know where she was in such a hurry to get to but I sure hope she had time to mutitask on the way and get those rollers out...and then how in the world is gonna check the back of her head to make sure it looks okay in a truck...hmmmmm.....oh well!

So she flies past me(in a no passing zone I might add) and speeds on up the road. Well she must not travel that road often cause if she did she would have know that you can set your watch by the school bus that will be picking up kids right up ahead on the right side of the road. So when she see's the buses flashing lights she slams on the brakes and waits behind the bus with the rest of us (cause you know out here in the country they don't have all the kids gater to get on at one stop....nope.....they pick up each kid up infront of their own house....even if there are 10 of them that all live right next to eachother)......

So there she sits, fuming that she is now running even more behind(if she was thinking, she would have had plenty of time to take her rollers out at this point).....so when I finally pull up to a stop behind her as a kid is getting on the bus, she looks back in her mirror at me.....and well....I just wave...tehehehe.....ya sure got WAY ahead of me sugar britches!!!!

May God bless her with a bad hair day :O)

So glad you stopped by my blog. I came over to visit and got a good laugh in the process. I love it when people fly past me only to get caught behind somebody else slower than me (who drives about 5-7 over). Wonder where she was headed in hair rollers??

Oh that's hysterical! I always find it so funny when they fly past you and wave that certain finger in the air and you wind up right beside or behind them. You just wanna say, "Now did that make you feel better?!"
