Remember how we've talked about freaky coincidences in the past? (Like this post from Halloween and this one about tuna.) Well, this morning I was flipping through the radio stations because the one I was tuned into started messing up.
I stopped on a song that reminded me of high school.
That made me remember riding in someone's car.
Which made me recall learning to drive...and how awful I thought I was (and probably indeed was until I became so expert..ha)
Which lead to thinking of people I've come across on blogs who were not
thrilled with driving or learning to drive later in life. (Where I live
we start driver's ed around age 14.)
That lead to a passing thought of Saudi Arabia and my not even being allowed to drive.
THEN I thought of men or women being better drivers.
Who got distracted more and caused more accidents.
(I thought of how sometimes Zach distracts me while I'm driving with him
because he'll be looking at me or playing with his bottle or thrashing
the part of his car seat that is supposed to keep the sun out of his
About that time the song that started this train of thought ended and the morning radio hosts introduced their next segment
THE BATTLE OF THE SEXES
Oh, weird, I thought. I'd just been thinking about this pertaining to driving.
So their battle today: distracted driving!
Doubly weird. Did they read my mind?!
Isn't it funny when stuff like this happens? Have you had something similar happen lately?
This isn't exactly the same, but also recently a friend wrote about
squirrel feeders and I joked that bird feeders were for squirrels as
well, weren't they? And then in the Sunday Parade magazine insert
in my parents' newspaper there was an article about squirrels in bird
feeders which I had fun sharing with her. In case you were wondering,
the lady in the Parade article named "her" squirrel Floyd. :)
