Ten Things I Wish I Could Figure Out:  And Other Random Thoughts From The Highway

Hello Internet!  So you saw the engagement photos of Joy and Doug from Tryon, NC yesterday, and you know what happens when I spend a couple of hours in the car.  Yes!!  Another random thoughts from Amanda blog post!  With high definition photos of random stuff!  Woot!

So there I was.  Cruising along in the car Saturday morning, jamming to my favorite Nina Simone tunes on the iPod (For the record, her version of Here Comes the Sun kinda trumps the original… sacrilegious, I know.  But true facts is true facts.), and my mind started to wander (hey, look, my mind wandered there too).  And I started thinking about how many times I had to run back in the house that morning before I could finally leave… which led me to ponder all the other great mysteries of the Universe.

And in no particular order, here are the things I wish I could figure out…

1.  How to leave the house on the first try.

6.  Time travel.  Nuff said.

7.  Why all the things that taste the best are bad for you.

8.  Why everything at Taco Bell tastes exactly the same but is still so tasty.

9.  Why some cars pass you and then slow down.

10  Why, when US gas prices are as high as they are, the US is currently exporting more oil than it imports.  ($3.80 a gallon on Saturday!!!)

11.  Where is Waldo anyway?

And that’s it Internet.  Five total hours in the car to ponder life’s mysteries, and that’s what I got.  Impressive, huh?  That’s just how I roll.
