And you can quote me: " Remember that Lincoln Continental commercial, from way back when - the one with the master diamond cutter in the back seat, cutting a hugely valuable diamond? The idea was that the Lincoln delivered such a smooth ride that the diamond cutter could cut the diamond even in the back of a moving car. Well, they ain't got nothing on me!"

Remember that Lincoln Continental commercial, from way back when – the one with the master diamond cutter in the back seat, cutting a hugely valuable diamond? The idea was that the Lincoln delivered such a smooth ride that the diamond cutter could cut the diamond even in the back of a moving car.

(And remember SNL’s spoof of that same commercial, with the Rabbi in the back, performing a bris?)

Well, the Lincoln, the diamond cutter, and the Rabbi ain’t got nothing on me.
Recently I went, with my family, to the grocery store. In said grocery store they have a Starbucks counter. I got a beverage, and then walked out to the car, beverage in hand, along with several bags of groceries.

After loading the car, we got in, and drove off. A few minutes later, now out of the parking lot, I reached for my drink … and it wasn’t there.

Holy cow! I’d left it on the roof of the car!

But, I didn’t remember seeing it fall off!

Incredulous, I stopped the car – uh, very carefully – and got out, and what to my wondering eyes should appear?

An upright, full cup full of Starbucks good cheer!

On the roof!

My husband had better not ever criticize my driving again!

Here’s a pic, in case you want proof.

  3. Well, you are in Boulder – doesn’t the gravitational pull, or lack-there-of, work completely in your favor there? Right after it rains Skittles and Money?
