Just last weekend I was with some friends while we visited Pittsburgh, and while we were checking out a couple of hot guys, the driver almost collided with a car ahead of us.
All I could think of at that point was, “Shit, wouldn’t *that* be a laugh? Telling the officer responding to the accident that our distraction was a couple of hot guys with tight asses? Would that go on the police report?”
I view the entire controversy of the whole “Texting While Driving” really silly. I mean, the way I see it, if we are going to go after anything, we should stop *distracted* driving, not just texting in particular. Trust me, I have seen much worse.
For example, I was driving in my own lane, minding my own business, singing showtunes at the top of my lungs, when I noticed a Range Rover that was driving parallel to me was about to drift over into my lane.
Just before I could honk my horn, the driver almost overcorrected, but pulled away from me nonetheless.
I caught a long glance at the driver and what I saw astounded me.
A woman, driving with her knee, was eating a bowl of spaghetti while a child standing in the passenger seat was hitting her on the head with something. It looked like a book, or just the cover of one.
The point was, I thought to myself had there been an accident, someone would have said, “Well, at least she wasn’t texting.”
Thing is, if we rid ourselves of distracted driving, we couldn’t change radio stations, eat a burger, or even have children in the car, because all of those things are a distraction as well, and if taken too far (as with texting) can cause an accident.
But, for some reason, texting is *much worse* than eating a bowl of spaghetti. Go figure.

Anyway, that’s enough of that. Be sure to leave comments on this page and let us know what you think! See you Sunday, folks!
