Random fact #2

Maybe I can stretch out to 25 by the end of the year. I don't know, you might all get bored with that.

Last fact was grinding my teeth. Which, btw, produced some great suggestions. Now it's time to work on the motivation to do something before I grind my teeth down to a pulp.

Fact #2: I rarely, if ever, use the horn in my car.

I can honestly say that I use my horn, maybe, once a year. And if it's any more than that, it's b/c Dave has reached across and honked it for me.

I don't want to offend people. Don't get me wrong, if someone is headed into my lane and obviously going to take out my car, I'll use my horn. And if some idiot in front of me is looking straight at the light that has just turned green but has failed to notice, I'll use it, but not before I have given a little "toot toot" of my voice (as if they are going to hear me inside my car).

All other horn purposes, don't apply to me. Road Rage: I don't have it. I have never been overcome with frustration to the point of using my horn just to get someones attention to flip them the bird. In the rare times that has happened to me, I have felt devastated when I've received that nasty finger. I also don't think the horn helps people learn how to drive better, or rather the way I want them too. Dave still holds to that philosophy. That's why I drive all the time. I can't handle hearing the horn.

So I'm going to continue keeping peace on the roadways. You won't be hearing my horn anytime soon.

I love my horn. I always say to Nate "You dont use your horn enough"

Love you!
So glad I saw you today.
You look darling! Love that tummy.

uhm kinda jealous...when do we get to see the tummy??

and i am totally with you on the horn thing. i think it should only be used in an emergency.

or if for some reason i happened to drive by you in real life...then i might have to honk and wave :)

When we lived in Germany - we would casually give our horn a toot toot, and it would so shock those Germans...they don't use theirs very much either...only when they can't see if a car is coming around a turn...wierd.
That is so nice that you are a peaceful driver...I should work on that! :0)
