For those reading this in the US, I'd like to direct your attention to a Volvo
commercial from about six or eight months ago... remember? the one where there's
a little girl just talking, talking, talking all the way home.
For those in other parts of the world who may not have seen this
commercial, it's just about your precious cargo. The little girl is about
five or six and her dad is taking her home from school or something
and she's just incessantly chatting away, he's hanging on her every word.
Well people... that was me today... only I really wasn't hanging on her every
word... I was a little irritated with the monologue that never seemed to have
an ending. My five year old chatter box kept on talking and talking in
her kind of high pitched Southern drawl.
I couldn't take it any more and after about five miles of blah blah blah
I yelled "STOP!!" as loud as I could.
for a couple of minutes, total silence, bliss!
Then a little voice from the back of the Jeep...
I smiled the rest of the way home....
