Little facts of no consequence

1. Some truck drivers miss the little signs that tell you how much clearance you have (or don’t) under a bridge. There’s a YouTube video that I guiltily find funny.

2. My cat likes to jump to and run on the counter when I am unloading her food into the bowl. She doesn’t try to eat on the counter but drops to the floor, where I have placed her bowl. This is her way of having fun.

3. I know where Syria is on the map and I can spell it, too.

4. That same cat is sleeping in my nearly-empty laundry basket. Too cute!

5. I was in fourth grade when our gym teacher lined us up at the foul line and told us to make a free throw. Not being athletic, I figured I would fail at this as I did at other games. Instead, on my first try, the ball went perfectly into the hoop. The other boys, who teased me regularly, were dumbfounded. As was I. Sadly, it was the only shot I made all day. I guess you could call this peaking too early.

6. My first kiss lasted 45 minutes.

7. I don’t care how many people like them, I can’t stand mushrooms. Or oysters. Squid is borderline tolerable.

  1. Ah, those truckers! Where’s that bridge? Must see if we can get one built to that specification where I live!

    Of course, being serious for a moment, I guess each crash is a unique experience (and not perhaps one with a short learning-curve) for each of the drivers. A number of them are rental trucks, after all, so they may not have paid attention to the max. headroom sign in the cab. But I like the ones who just sheer off the skylights off the motorhomes and carry on to their delivery destination — and the hay carts where the second one sees what happened to the first, and just carries on through as well.

    There must be a heck of a lot of guys who don’t know they need a 12ft clearance!
