Can you do this?

I've seen lots of skills performed while driving the last 20 years! Wow, is that really true? 20 years of driving - eek!

I've seen make-up putter-oners, shavers, newspaper readers, cereal eaters (yes, in a bowl with milk and all!). I had a friend in high school (Miss Mary Harkin) who could drive with her knees and then there are those who can drive with one leg sticking out of the car!! And of course, the ones we all do - cellphone users, helping a child in the backseat, etc.

But today, I saw a new one, I've never seen in my 20 years before....a crossstitcher!

Complete with loom, needle, and pattern book. And the crazy part, this was a lady in a big suburban with at least 3 kids in the car, including one in an infant carrier. Wow, she's committed to her crosstitch! Or perhaps, with 3 or more children, this is the only time she has to stitch!

So, what have you seen out there on the roads?

It is so funny to see my friends connecting through blogs...OK...I remember Mary doing that too. I have to admit, you scared me in that big gray thing you drove one time. I remember it very clearly. I think there were 4 or 5 of us in your car from church and you were touching up your powder. It was way too much girl power in one car. Ha,Ha!!!

Oh...when I was a senior in High School after I moved to Florida, I used to eat a bagel, drink coffee and drive a stick shift across town to my out-of-zone high school. And then there were the days I put my make-up on somewhere in there too. It is a wonder teenage girls are allowed to get a driver's license.
Crossstitching has reached a new level!
