I have that "On This Day" app installed on facebook. It shows me posts from that same day, going back through all my years on there.
I read this one today from a post I wrote in 2008 and thought, "Yep. It still holds up." These were the days I would spend about 3 hours in the car, driving 4 kids to & from 3 schools. I did a lot of driving.
While I have already procured a friend to touch up any roots, and make sure I have on my favorite lipstick (because, come on, I know what's important), I don't remember anyone volunteering for the latter, so there are still positions available.

As I was driving to pick up my middle schooler, I noticed a paramedic slowly opening a gurney, with no apparent haste necessary.
This got me to thinking: Perhaps the person needing the paramedic in the first place, was already dead.
That realization led me to this: When I die, I need a couple people who will help Dale or my kids load me in the back of their car and drive me to the mortuary. I mean really, if I'm slumped over a bit, or even folded into the trunk, what do I care?
Save the $1K ambulance ride and buy yourself something nice.
