As soon as I saw it I said, "That's great! I'll take it on my trip!" I won't have access to a computer for a week on the road trip I am taking with my daughter in August, so I thought it would be perfect for keeping notes on what I do each day. Then I thought that on the back page I would make a list of goofy things to talk about when we get bored. So far I've come up with this:
That first one took my second husband and myself all the way to St. Louis from Fort Worth. Which was 10 1/2 hours of drive time. You'd be surprised by how many old expressions like "You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink" and "We'll cross that bridge when we come to it" there are. Well I can tell you that there are 10 1/2 hours of them. And maybe we even missed a few. But anyway, I was hoping some of you might have some suggestions of things to add to the list. And I don't mean any of the regular stuff involving billboards or license plates or cows or the alphabet game which we played ad infinitum all those years of picking up my daughter from her dad's house. What I'm looking for are odd or goofy topics that will require some time and thought. And hopefully a few laughs.
By the way, on the dog thing, I think I'd be a yorkshire terrier because they are highly excitable and quite yappy. Oddly, I do not like yorkshire terriers. But that sort of makes sense since they always say that no one would like to hang out with themself. And if I had to be a yorkshire terrier, I would certainly hope that my owner would tie my hair back because I absolutely detest having hair in my face.
