If you're just joining me, scroll back to Day One to get the low-down on why I'm writing micro-posts instead of my usual epic tomes. Seriously, you won't regret it. Sometimes I amaze myself with my wisdom, poetic genius, and enviable humility. Whoops. Gotta run. Time to take my medication...
5: I'm thankful for my cell phone. I will never understand people who complain about cell phones. I am absolutely in love with mine. And when I've got my bluetooth dealio in my ear, I feel just like Uhura from "Star Trek." ("Captain, we're being hailed by the Klingon vessel. Oh, and do you think my skirt is short enough? Because I could try wrapping it around my head.")
However, after years of careful observation and study, it has become apparent to me that I am the only person on earth capable of talking on a cell phone while driving. I don't know why, but the rest of you simply can not handle it.
Even Captain Kirk had someone else fielding his calls from the Klingons. He knew he had to, you know, sit there commandingly. There's no shame in admitting you can't do everything.
So, please, keep your hands on the wheel, and leave the multi-tasking to the experts.
(Uhura and me.)
