Planes And Boats And Trains



Singers sing about cars, trucks, vans, motorcycles, boats, rockets, planes, helicopters, trains, buses, subways, balloons, bicycles, unicycles, skateboards, rollerskates, horses, and even Segways (Weird Al Yankovic)

… but no one ever sings about stilts.

Songwriters can’t be blamed for this oversight really:

the best rhyme that goes with “stilts” is “kilts”

… and stilts and kilts don’t really work too well together in my experience.

double note: when I saw this photo it made me realize why I usually drive on the inside of my van.


Today #95

I’m washing my stinky slippers today.
The ones I don’t wear at all never stink!
It’s a mystery!


Transitting And Thinking


I like driving.

My destination doesn’t have to be too important: it’s the journey that I like.

There’s just something about being out watching the world go by as I go by. It makes me feel productive, without having to do anything very productive.

I regularly drive an hour to do or buy something that I could do or buy about 5 minutes away from where I live.

Sometimes I enjoy the trip so much, I am a bit disappointed when I get to where I am going. I want to keep driving.

I guess I’m a journeyman … and my craft is my van.


note: sometimes the distance between two points is the point.

double note: I drove an hour to buy *cranberry juice. Now it’s gone! I guess I’ll have to go back and get some more next weekend.

*cranberry juice isn’t something I can find 5 minutes away

Sometimes it’s the little things that keep us sane.
