Good morning crew,
Last weekend I took a little road trip to visit my sisters in Pennsylvania. Call it an informal family reunion. In order to save the $290 roundtrip airfare I carpooled with my brother Nino and two nephews.
While it was definitely cheaper than flying, out of the 72 hours I had allowed for the trip, I spent 22 hours of it in a car. And if you think I have an off-color sense of humor, you should try spending 11 hours at a stretch locked in a metal box with that crew.
While the drive was exhausting (isn't it funny how just sitting in a vehicle for hours can tire you out?) it was nothing that a number of stiff drinks couldn't cure.
I'll tell you more about that later.
Laugh it up,

A customer moves away from a bank window, counts his change, and then goes back and says to the cashier, "Hey, you gave me the wrong change!"
"Sir, you stepped away from the counter," said the cashier. "We don't make corrections after you leave. There's nothing I can do about it now. That's the policy of this bank."
"Well, ok," answered the customer. "Just thought you'd like to know that you gave me an extra twenty. Bye."

My mother and I were walking through the mall when a man stopped us to ask if we would take part in a survey. One of the questions was; "Do you think there is too much sex in movies?"
"I don't know," replied my mother. "I'm usually too wrapped up in the film to notice what the rest of the audience is doing."
