It is time for another rendition of COMMENTS FROM THE CAR. This year's installment was recorded during our trip from Cody, Wyoming, to the Oregon Coast, roughly a 16 hour trip.
*listening to "Live Like We're Dyin'" by Kris Allen*
B: You can do the Macarena to this.
*Macarena then performed by the adults in the front seats, making the teens in the back squirm uncomfortably*
B (to a very slow camper trailer): This trailer is going 30 miles per hour in a sixty-five. I could moonwalk faster than this guy.
Mare-Bear: (rummaging through the treat box): I want some Bugles.
K: You've eaten too many Sunchips. You're fine.
Mare-Bear: But they're getting crushed. We need to eat them.
K: They're fine.
Mare-Bear: Can I have some Bugles now?
Mare-Bear: Why not?
B: Because sometimes you don't get what you want right when you want it.
K: We're preparing you for life.
B: Life is not a bag of Bugles.
*adults nod and grin, pleased with our lesson*
Mare-Bear: Can I please have some Bugles? They're getting crushed to bits and pieces... I have a point, you know.
SmileyB: Why did the elephant cross the road?
SmileyB: Uh... let's try that again. WHY did the elephant...
