Seven Things That Have Nothing In Common

I was going for Thirteen, but my brain is 47 % empty. Call me a pessimist.

1. On the way to school this morning- "Mommy, how much horsepower does this thing have?" (FYI- I drive a Camry.)

2. For those who are wondering, I am 35 years old, I do not hunt, and I haven't fallen down. When I get my roots done, I promise I'll post a photo so you will- without-a-doubt- know that I am not Hank Hill.

3. While watching a new commercial yesterday about a car with GPS, it occurred to me that we always stop at gas stations for directions. Why is this? Do we assume that just because they supply fuel for the car that they also know the direction the vehicle should be going? Was the attendant sitting at the register studying a map until we drove up?

4. Which leads to this...I grew up in the age where gas and food were sold separately- like across the street from each other. The only food you could get from the gas station was a Coke and a pack of malt crackers. Now I have to pump my own gas, but the assortment of junk food is quite refreshing.

5. My childhood hero- Chris, Miss Charlie's Angel herself, Cheryl Ladd is now on a commercial about menopause. Jaclyn Smith is still lookin' good at K-mart, so maybe there's still hope. I guess this means Charlie is... dead? And I never found out who he is!!

6. I would love to win on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire so that I can walk in Dollar Tree and freak out the cashier.

7. Ok, and give some of it away. And buy a few things.

Like something with some horsepower.

Funny. Should have done just one more and pushed it to 51% then you could have said you were an optomist.

I was a big fan of Charlie's Angels (the original cast.) My favorite Angel was Kelly, but I wanted Jill's car. Remember that Cobra? Charlie's voice was John Forsythe, aka Blake Carrington of Dynasty.

Do those roots and send a picture! You're going to have to prove that you're not an AARP member.
