I spend two hours a day in my car, a large 2001 Chrysler LHS. I grew up in a family that always had large cars – a 1960 Olds 98, and at least three models of LTD Station Wagon (woodies) – in fact, my mom still owns one. I have come to require enough space to be comfortable, and today’s compact, even mid-sized cars, seem to be built for small Japanese women.

What really annoys you when you are out to eat? Probably not the same things as me. Sure, there are people on their cell phones, or people with kids, but that’s just normal stuff, as far as I’m concerned. Buy a few things get to me. And by the way, people who tell gross stories while we are eating, that doesn’t bother me a bit – I’m that guy. Did I ever tell you about my experience with colonics?
