I don't do a lot of driving around town. Mostly because we are a one car family this year. (yes, it's hard and yes, I can't wait until we get another car) When I do drive, I do like to listen to music. And a lot of the stations around here are country. But I seem to have the worst luck. For a while, every time I turned on country music, there was that song about the soldier writing from deployment and then you figure out he's died, and he's reassuring his family that he's ok. Seriously, how is one supposed to drive when listening to that? Yesterday that song didn't come on (thank goodness or people would have thought something was wrong with me. who gets out of their car with red teary eyes?) But on the way home, I heard that song about "you're gonna miss this", and then another song about a guy talking to a 100 year old man and how he says "don't blink". Come on. What would it look like when I roll down my window to give the guard my ID to get back on post crying my eyes out?? I managed to keep it under control. But we're going to have to limit my country music intake. Especially now. Although Jodee Macina's song about wanting to be around to watch when the guy gets dumped "to leave you with your fire burning and no way to put it out" (my favorite line) was a good way to even out the emotions of the afternoon. Country music causes water to develop in the eyes and prohibits them from seeing properly. Which you kind of need to do while driving. Friends don't let friends listen to country music while driving.
This is my blog. I write about being a military wife. Which is pretty much the same as other wives. Except when my husband leaves, it isn't for a week long business trip. Sometimes I write about regular stuff. Sometimes I don't. But hey, this is me. :)
