FUNNY THINGS I SAW WHILE DRIVING ACROSS THE COUNTRY
- •A van with a bumper sticker that said "Jean Claude Van Van"
- •A big truck (like a tractor trailer bit without a trailer attached) with a "student driver" sign on the back
- •A bearded, middle-aged white man in a shiny silver Nissan with a "Rastafarian" bumper sticker
- •Two separate road signs announcing that I was in the home town of Carrie Underwood, American Idol 2005
