One reason why I admire my mom...

...Among many, of course.  We were just talking on the phone while she was out and about running errands.  

Keep in mind that I have been told, "You're a totally different person behind the wheel!"  I will yell, swear, and honk at the drop of a hat.  Other drivers need my guidance.  Badly.  One of my favorites: "Pick a lane, Captain No-Lane!"*  

So my mom was talking to me and driving just now, and she blurted out, "Sir, why didn't you put on your blinker sooner?  Sorry, I don't mean to be impatient with you, it's just a consideration to others on the road."  When I asked her about her kind, calm, and thoroughly explained statement, she said, "Well, I try not to be impatient, 'cause I really don't like it."  Touche!

*Although, I've improved quite a bit by reminding myself the simple phrase: You never know who has a bad mood, and a gun under their seat.

  1. I have been a published topic! I love the you never know quote. I'm sure it was someone else's wise old mum! I just say, "It's not worth high blood pressure over.(or a gunshot wound) By the way isn't Soul Town the greatest? It is nice that you took the time to photograph your towel to share with the world.
