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*
” H: Heat-seeking-Hearing Loss on the Highway makes me Happy”
That wordy title perfectly sums up my trip home today.
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
