H is for Highway to Home

 Halleluia I am Home!   My H post of the day for the A to Z blogging challenge refers to my recent art show excursion. Feels like I have been gone a week…been run over by a truck and had my brains sucked out through a straw…but it was only from Friday morning to Saturday night. *hmmpff*

My alternative title for this post was going to be
H: Heat-seeking-Hearing Loss on the Highway makes me Happy” 
That wordy title perfectly sums up my trip home today. 
And, since this blog is called Secrets about Secrets…let me spill some secrets from my ride home. 

Since I traveled solo – due to the large art and my firmly ingrained anti-social tendencies- I was able to blast the heat and the radio to the max. My toes were hot – and body could feel the music … even as my eardrums were no doubt being damaged. Hence, the heat seeking/hearing loss

It is not a habit of mine….neither the heat or the loud music. Not a habit, just a treat. Like the black coffeee and Twizzlers for dinner. I don’t get the opportunity to thaw my ice-cold toes often.  My kids were somehow born with their very own internal furnaces. And the whole loud music thing is just a treat – saved for long stretches of highway and solo trips. You can’t very well have blaring music with a car-full of people. Well, *you* could maybe…but I keep that my little secret.

Besides, my traveling music includes an eclectic mix of girl power, Frank Sinatra, ting tings, cake, various movie soundtracks, gospel and classical tracks. And I love to flip at will…if you were not ADD before riding in the car with me…you will be.  ( that is if I did this in front of anyone – which I won’t – so you are safe)

Since I am spilling secrets, let me share more of my horrible habits while hightailing it down the highway…I keep a notebook next to me, in case something interesting pops into my head, or a truck with a cool looking lion passes by and I just feel the urge to sketch it…yes, while driving. I also drink a lot of coffee, or tea depending upon how health conscious I am feeling, so I keep a thermos in the backseat…and can pour while driving. Those are my “letter H” secrets…shhhhh

  1. I have a notebook too, that I scribble in, hoping it's readable by the time I need it. Don't want to keep my eyes off the road for longer than a second, so I barely even look at the notebook, but drawing? Wow. I'd love to see that kind of artwork. If you would like to read my latest post for the A-Z Challenge, just click http://myheartblogstoyou.blogspot.com/ and look at the top blog.

  2. I love your highway secrets. To me, there's nothing like blasting music when you're on the highway, but I try to save all long road trips for when the weather's nice enough to have all the windows down – windows down, music blasting, best thing ever to me. I have to say I wouldn't want to be on the road near you while you're doodling or reaching for your thermos lol. LOVE the disclaimer, too…great post!

  3. I think any trip requiring an overnight bag always promises some interesting and frustrating moments. I usually plan too much and attempt to do it all. You disclaimers are hilarious! Good luck with the challenge!

  4. *gigglesnort* Oh, this was amusing. I also have anti-social tendencies and LOVE a road trip by myself so I can blast my own choice of music… the kids are down with loud, but they are picky about what we listen to.

  5. Lots of fantastic reading here, thank you! I was searching on yahoo when I observed your article, I’m going to add your feed to Google Reader, I look forward to far more from you.
