Boring Drives

Last week the drive home from work was awful everyday. There was stop and go traffic for at least 20 minutes to get out of norman every single day. On Friday I carpooled to work with this guy:

So that I could ride home with this guy:

I tend to either get really bored and zone out in the car or really hyper and hilarious/annoying. It's debatable whether I was being hilarious or annoying on this Friday evening drive.

So you know what I mean by boring... I took this picture so you could see how boring... this is me searching for gray hairs. Which has become a daily obsession, so far I've found 4.

This is embarrasing. I should probably not post this. Oh well, too late. This past Friday I was hyper. I discovered that I could do a really good parrot voice. I proceeded to talk in this parrot voice the remainder of the drive. It went something like this:

Me: Aarrgh I'm a Parrot
Dave: what?
Me: Aarrgh I've got a good parrot voice!
Dave: (clearly annoyed with the traffic not me) ok great babe.
Me: Aarrgh Roy-G-Biv
Dave: (just shoots me a look like Really?)
Me: Aarrgh Polly wanna cracker! Wait do parrots say that? I think that's just pet birds.
Dave: it's parrots
Me: Aaarrrgh you sure?
Dave: how long is this going to go on?
Me: Aaarrgh you sick of it?
Dave: laughs finally because I quoted this commercial we've both thought was hilarious for the past few weeks. I'm sure you've all seen it but in case you haven't here it is:

You'll find yourself quoting "We're sick of it" in a lot of situations now trust me!

And if you all have any better ideas for how I could pass the time while riding in the car I'm open to suggestions.
