- You can't buy cold beer at the liquor stores in Oklahoma. The logic behind this is that the purchaser of a cold beer would pop one open in the car. I don't know how that logic would apply to someone who bought a bottle of liquor. Perhaps they don't sell mixers, ice or glassware.
- Wild turkeys can fly. I learned this when a small flock flew over the hood of my car.
- I can probably eat my weight in banana-pineapple-Cool Whip-cream cheese-apricot Jello salad. After I do that, I can no longer bend over to tie my own shoes.
- A single night at the Four Seasons in NYC costs $1,059.00.
- Wheel chair crossings exist.
- If TNG sleeps in The Little One's room, I can get 6 hours of sleep in a row.
- It's OK to say "I don't want to," instead of trying to think up excuses.
- Driving straight into 30+ MPH winds with the luggage on top of the car cuts my gas mileage in half.
Another Something New is that I didn't turn into Bridget Jones while visiting my parents. Not the Renee Zellweger Bridget Jones, but the Helen Fielding Bridget Jones. The Bridget Jones who is treated like 14-year-old when she visits her parents, and has to wear ghastly outfits her mother buys out for her. My mother did buy me a new outfit ("It's just like Katie Couric wore when she climbed the Himalayas") but it was actually something simple and didn't look like something my mother bought for me. I also didn't feel guilty about staying out late. However, I did not get Mark Darcy/Fitzwilliam Darcy/Colin Firth at the end of the visit as a lovely parting gift.
