Ok, I see how it is. Write something personal, thoughtful, and/or thought provoking and you get nada. Make fun of the dumb guy, suddenly everyone wants to leave comments. At least now we have a base-line measurement for the lowest common denomenator of my readership.
And whore that I am...
My two favorite JasonismsTM of the day (so far):
Let me set this one up just a little. Jason drove last night across Indiana, then Ohio and into West Virginia where we swtiched seats. I drove us to Pennsylvania where we were to get our load this morning. Beavertown, PA is a small town in the central part of the state. The only way in and out is over some two-lane highway and, quite frankly, I wasn't ready for Jason to tackle this just yet, at least, I didn't want him trying to navigate through Lewistown, PA. It's a nightmare even for a seasoned pro doing it the first time. So, I drove us back out of there to the turnpike. We stopped at the Sideling Hill Service Plaza where I grabbed a Starbucks Caramel Macchiato and we switched seats. I explained to him that we would be reversing what we had done the night before... out Pennsylvania, through the panhandle of WV and traversing both Ohio and Indiana into Illinois where we are delivering this evening. Maybe an hour later, we're crossing a somewhat long bridge over a decent-sized river on I-70 between New Stanton and Washington.
Jason: "Is this Kentucky?"
In retrospect, it does look like a smaller version of the bridge spanning the Ohio river we had crossed just a few days previously when I was heading home. But one would think the absence of a teeming metropolis like Louisville with its skyline, multi-highway junctions, and traffic would've been a clue, not to mention, you know, the presence of mountains. And of course, in addition to me explaining we would be back-tracking through Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana.
The other one's a quickie:
Jason: [quoting a highway sign] " 'Left Lane No Trucks'. What does that mean?"
