Ha! Very similar to "You Live in Cali When..." Especially the shade parking. It's fall and it was 101 degrees today!

On road trips I apply sunscreen to ONLY my left arm so I don't have a lopsided tan or worse...a left arm burn!

I've also been known to eavesdrop into a Spanish conversations and surprise everyone. Muy bien on the blog post!

Thanks for the giggle...
