Come blow your horn
Answer to the Radio Question of the day:
Blow their horn.
The question of the day on the radio had been asked and answered before I turned to the proper station for that.
It was very foggy this morning. I mean really, really foggy. I was having a hard time of it on the way to meet my walking buddy Irene.
I'm listening to this radio station, and folks are callin' in sayin' "Did you get the answer yet?"
Radio DJ: "Yes, we did. But what did you think the answer was?"
Caller-in: "Drive in the ice and snow."
RDJ: "No, it was 'Honk their horn.' "
Next caller: "Did you get the answer to the question yet?"
RDJ: "Yes, we did. What was going to be your answer?"
Next caller: "Drive after dark."
I'm driving and trying to think hard, "what the #$%^* was the *(@#% question?"
Now, ol' Lucy isn't the type who can walk and chew gum at the same time. Here she is tryin' to drive and derive at the same time, in the fog. It ain't safe I tell ya.
People keep on calling in and asking the wrong question, "Did you get the answer to the question of the day yet?"
Any fool can see that the right question is, "WTF was the question of the day?" Ah sees.
That was this morning. Since then I've run a few errands, had the car serviced, and gone to see "Brokeback Mountain" with husband, Niks. That's a really good movie. I sure don't think of it as a gay cowboy movie at all. It's a sad love story, pure and simple. Very well done. Both guys are very good actors. Beautiful scenery as well.
Now it's about 5:15 PM and I still don't know the question to the answer of the day. Just called the radio station and asked them. The question to the answer is,
60% of drivers are afraid to do this because they think it might be dangerous...
Oh, yeah! I've killed many a person by honking my horn. Or at least maimed them. Those drivers.
What I learned today: Brokeback Mountain was filmed in British Columbia, Canada. The story is set in Wyoming, and was directed by Ang Lee.
