The pretty side of patriotism

New year’s news flash: my always reliably-informed older sister informs me that our grandmother was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, just like Emily Gilmore. So I’m classier and more patriotic than previously thought. Maybe I’ll join up so I’ll have an excuse for looking down on people.

Speaking of looking down on people: my always reliably-informed friend K informs me that there is a reason why truck drivers always seem to be looking down on you as they pass, rather than at the road, the way you think they would when seated in a huge piece of heavy machinery hurtling through space. K’s bro is one of the trucking brethren himself, and according to him, if a trucker notices a pretty girl, he radios it (“Great rack in the silver Mazda! 10-4!”) so his fellow drivers can check out the passing scenery. Really, you can hardly blame them, what with the long hours and the monotony of staring at the highway. Next time a trucker looks down on you, smile and wave!

So now you know about the DAR and truckers, all in the same place. How educational is that?
