That's twice in one night

To the car with the elderly lady and gentleman in the Wegman's Parking lot, and also the cars along Route 250 last night: I am really sorry.  Apparently, when driving my car, I now have a habit of putting my hands on the steering wheel in a weird position, and thereby somehow honking my horn.  The first time this happened I was looking around to see who was honking at me, and then I realized that the sound was coming from MY car.  I looked up and the elderly couple in the car in front of me were laughing at me.  I just burst out laughing and they went on their way.  About 30 seconds later as I pulled out onto the street from the parking lot, it happened again.  Seriously, what the hell? Since when did I start driving with my hands resting on the inner part of the steering wheel? I usually drive with my hands on the outer part at the bottom of the wheel in the 6:00 position.  (yes, I know 10 and 2, 10 and 2, but I drive for very long periods of time during the day and my arms get tired.  that's my story and I'm sticking to it) I think that the cats are brainwashing me at night when I sleep.

It's the Aliens doing it to you!!

Our Mom took a class and they said it's not 10 and 2 anymore, it's 3 and 9 because of airbags!

Noll's Nip said... said 10 & 2 and I was visualizing....I do 9 & 3 myself. And yes, once or twice in MY LIFETIME ;) I have sounded the horn by accident and startled myself. What are they putting in your coffee :)

Thumper said...

9 and 3 is the new 10 and's safer in case your airbag goes off. It won't help with the horn, though ;)

So if you drive at 10 and 2 and the airbag goes off, do you give yourself to black eyes? 3 and 9 sounds much safer because if the airbag goes off, you punch the person behind instead.

You are a blast, and thank heavens I found this blog!
Seriously. Funny. Real. Life.
Way to go.
You haven't told the cats you have your own blog, right??
(yes, brandi's mom.*sigh*)

Mum doesn't do 10 and 2 either, at least not all the time. It gets hard on her sholders. But she doesn't honk the horn!

I just want to say: I LOVE the way you write. You never cease to make me laugh. If we could bottle and distribute you, the world would be a happy, peaceful place.
I'm just saying...
Thanks for that. d.
