Car Space Oddity

Although the title sounds like a science fiction film, it really describes what odd things people do when they get in their cars.

By putting three inches of steel and glass between one person and the next, people believe that they are alternately invisible or invincible.

We've all seen people eating, talking on the phone, texting, picking their nose, putting on makeup, reading the newspaper and the like while driving.

(Now, you and I would never do anything like that (yeah, right); and we know that anyone who drives slower than you is an idiot, and anyone who drives faster is a maniac ...)

But today I saw something that I think takes the cake; it simultaneously made me laugh and want to change lanes to get away.

A guy was playing the ukelele while driving. Both hands. And he was the only guy in the car. Are you serious? Playing an instrument while driving? Crazy.

I was there. It's the pure, unadulterated, I-$#!%-you-not truth.

I must confess, I really wish I could have heard what he was playing.

I guess this isn't the time or place to admit that I used to change my clothes while driving?
