I like to listen to my mp3 player while I mow and I usually just think about a few ideas while I do it: I think about some of the songs that come on; I think about how I'm glad we don't have a riding mower because the walk-behind mower is good exercise and if we did have a riding mower I would for sure have a cup holder on one side for water or iced coffees and a feed bag on the other full of sweet potato chips; I think about how I shouldn't complain about mowing since I've only done it twice this summer; I wonder if the bees in the underground bees' nest will ever chase me down again like they did about five years ago; I wonder what Peggy eats. I think about those kinds of things.
But today it was a little different. I had this thought creep into my mind for some reason and it wouldn't let go. And it was this: Does Prince ever drive his own car? And if he does, is he a pretty good driver on icy roads? I have a feeling he's a pretty good driver in bad weather.
I couldn't get it out of my head this afternoon.
