The speed limit ?
5 mph over ?
10 mph over ?
zoom zoom ? And get very frustrated when others get in my way Just the other day I even had to ask myself why I was going so fast. I wasn't even in a hurry. I think this happens when you grow up cities where everyone drives fast, or runs you over.

Bonus Question:

Does your TV "tease you" by airing commercials for stores or restaurants that are not in your area ? Nope

Extra Credit Question:

When it comes to people wearing their pants pulled up to their waist and not showing their underwear (and everything else that no one wants to see) I guess you could say I am a bit "old fashioned" ?

Just for Fun:

We have gotten to know each other over the past couple years,so thought it would be fun to find out

Which QOTD family member would you like to swap places with for the day ? I'm still too much of a realist. So naturally, I will have to be myself.

When it comes to choosing fine chocolate I would make a pretty good Coach ?

Today is:

ok before we get started on today's ? Lets solve the mystery of yesterdays
Do you know where Levi Straus put a rivet in the original pair of blue jeans, which was fairly quickly removed ?
The original pair of blue jeans that Levi Strauss made had a copper rivet in the crotch seam. And one night when old Levi was squatting right by the campfire, he suddenly realized that it was not such a terribly good idea to have a piece of metal in that precise location. So ever since, Levi's blue jeans have had rivets in all the other high-stress seam corners EXCEPT that one!
I guess they were the original "hot pants"
