Update on the Mobile Insane Asylum

entertainment center on wheels

I try very hard not to complain, but only seldom succeed. I don’t intend to complain for the next 15 minutes or so. Maybe avoiding it in small increments will make me stronger.

Lately I’ve been smacking myself around and comparing myself to Paris Hilton whining about the color of her dog clashing with the color of the purse said dog is in. Don’t know if she actually did that, but it sounds like something she would do and I’m trying to make a point here. The problem is I forgot what the point was.

Oh yes, the insane asylum on wheels. As mentioned a few weeks ago, the Hubman, Mother-in-Law, and I are driving to from North Texas to Key West, Florida for a family wedding because she refuses to fly there. Ah family weddings, wouldn’t be easier to have one great huge wedding and marry everyone off at once? I think the Moonies had a good thing going there, although most of their beliefs are a bit off the wall, in my opinion anyway. It would be a huge cost savings, and greatly reduced stress level would be only a few on the benefits. But, every Bride wants her day and who I am to differ? In fact, I liked my day so much I did it 3 times.

Mother-in-Law traded in her leased car for a new one in preparation for the trip. She’s been driving a Cadillac sedan. The new one is a the Caddy version of a cross over vehicle. This darn car does everything. It even has its own phone number for crying out loud. Now I have to add accidentally butt dialing her car and having her overhear my conversation with Hubman about her driving me crazy to my list of ridiculous things to worry about. And get this, it has dual Blu-Ray players in the back of the headrests with wireless headphones. How cool is that? Now we’ll be squabbling over who gets to sit in the back seat.

Oh well, as Lily Thomlin once said “mankind invented the spoken word because of his basic inner need to complain.” I consider it my duty to listen to my inner needs.

  1. Your inner needs are of the utmost importance, right?

    1. Well I certainly hope so. Can’t really expect anyone to read my mind.

  2. Does the car have a built-in cooler to fill with adult beverages? Or maybe a plug for a blender so you can whip up some tequila smoothies on the road? I would need that if traveling across multiple states in a car with my relatives!

    1. No, it doesn’t have a cooler. But it does have a plug for charging laptops, phones, etc. I see no reason why I couldn’t plug blender in to it. What is the worst that could happen? MIL throws me out of the car? ha ha. I’ll hitch a ride to the nearest airport and beat them to Key West by 2 days. I think I’ll go dig out my little lady flask that I got for Christmas a while back.
