10 Things I Learned This Summer

1) Hands-free phones can be just as distracting as handheld phones...if not more so.

2) Polish water ice is regular water ice mixed with soft serve ice cream. And it is yummy.

3) When the Pussycat Dolls grew up they wanted to have GROUPIES. Yeah, I totally misheard that one.

4) If you’re in the grocery store during a small earthquake, there’s really no better place to be than the bread aisle.

5) Going to Disneyland is way more fun when you bring a good-natured six-year old with you. I suspect this lesson is quite different with children who are not as good-natured.

6) Be wary when following the directions of a teen who has yet to obtain a license.

7) Good Road Trip Music: Panic At The Disco, Katy Perry, and the Mamma Mia! soundtrack. Bad road trip music: Celine Dion, smooth jazz, and anything with the words "lullaby" or "dirge" in the title.

8) Cardboard 3-D glasses inserted into TV Guide for a televised Miley Cyrus concert are not designed with adult-sized heads in mind.

9) Vampires can have babies.

10) Back to school shopping is much more fun when you don’t actually have to go back to school. (On the flip side, summer isn’t nearly as fun when people expect you to work through it.)

Lol. That's probably one of the funniest things I've read. Especially the bread aisle one :)

My goal is to educate and entertain.

And that bread aisle one was learned from experience. I had just left the pasta sauce aisle (or the gravy aisle, for the Italians in the group.)

Thanks so much for enlightening me on #3. I still like my version better though... :)

I'm going to assume we both heard the same thing for #3 and agree that it's much more fun to sing along our way.

lol was the "vampires can have babies" in reference to Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer?

:D I love your taste in music!

You guessed it, Lindsay.


Hands free phones are worse!

The Pussycat Dolls must have know what it sounded like, right? They MUST have.

Great list. Although, I have to admit, my then three-year-old son was always spot on with his directions (he often pointed out when I...in a writerly fog...turned the wrong way for a particular destination). And at 21, he still doesn't have his license.
