Just a few thoughts crossing my mind today:
Does it make you sad when TV stars from years past are advertising (usually) elder-care products on TV? (Think Henry Winkler, who is telling us about all the benefits of a reverse mortgage. Who would have ever thought Fonzie would be gray-haired and relying on commercials for income??)
Is it just me, or is this the first year that ‘Black Friday’ sales started weeks before the typical ‘Black Friday’ day?
Do you see signs that say “Don’t Veer For Deer” where you live? I personally don’t know how else to do when a deer goes running in front of my car. Am I supposed to just go straight and plow right into it? I was driving home with pizza and bread sticks the other night when a deer jumped right in front of me. Of course, I veered because it was just instinct. Strangely enough, I also covered up the food so it did not spill everywhere too. So, I saved a deer and dinner, without even giving it a second thought. (I do recognize that ideally drivers should just hit the brakes and stay in control of the vehicle when a deer runs in front of the car to avoid careening in to other cars. However, when it happened to me, I just did what I could to not hit the deer. Maybe I need a driver/deer safety course?)
How do you react when you see someone obviously texting while driving? I don’t mean at a stop light, but I mean going 50 mph down a major road? When I saw someone veering out of their lane last week, I looked over and saw a 20 something woman who was actively texting and steering at the same time. I wanted to call the police, but I figured that she would be done by the time the police would catch up with her. It is too bad we have no recourse against people out on the road that are putting themselves and us in danger with their distracted (or drunk) driving.
Why do dresses for nice occasions all seem to lack sleeves year-round? I hate having to buy a supplemental sweater for whatever dress I wear to a wedding. Just one more reason for me to despise clothes shopping.
What are your thoughts for today?
