    What should my main character do next?
    Suggested by Β  @jpbateson
  2. β€’
    @jpbateson the first thing that came to mind: your main character has a mishap at his/her local coffee shop. Either a physical mishap or a relationship one :)

    What is your least favorite thing about list?
    Suggested by Β  @aus10
  4. β€’
    Haha @aus10! When it's quiet! It's mainly a timezone thing. Or, maybe I need to follow more listers!!
    I honestly love this platform. There isn't much I don't like :)
  5. β€’
    Quokka or kookaburra?
    Suggested by Β  @aus10
  6. β€’
    @aus10 tough call!.. quokka. Funny story: this week a quokka hitched a ride back to the mainland on the waste disposal ferry and was found wandering around Canningvale! πŸ˜‚ First quokka to reach the mainland!

    What's your favorite thing about road trips? Least favorite thing?
    Suggested by Β  @sarahsmith4
  8. β€’
    @sarahsmith4 it depends!.. in this case, least is that my mum is seriously asking/telling me way too many pointless things! Best thing.. (on this trip) seeing this:
    My goddaughter and niece who fell asleep holding hands. Fucking adorable!
  9. β€’
    @sarahsmith4 in general, I LOVE road trips, so I love everything about them. Least liked thing on a long haul road trip (5+ hours) is having to do the quick squat on the side of the road before all the trucks you over took come back!

    Ask your Mum, "The internet wants to know what you, Mum, think of Donald Trump?"
    Suggested by Β  @andersun
  21. β€’
    She thinks the media is blowing it up. She says (and how Aussie is this?) "let's just give him a go". Don't hate her!.. she's not for or against. The media is just so relentless.
  22. β€’
    Jess, ask her why she named you Jessica and also, if she met me would she cheers a glass of wine, champagne, beer, rum or sparkling water with me before we hugged!:)
    Suggested by Β  @nikkilounoel
  23. β€’
    @nikkilounoel she named me after Jessica Lange! She also will cheers you with champagne πŸ₯‚ 😘
  24. β€’
    Paddle board or skateboard?
    Suggested by Β  @andersun
  25. β€’
    Low key obsessed with skateboarding, which I can't do! I can paddle board though, so I guess paddle. Unless there was someone willing to teach me to skate!
  26. β€’
    Which ocean borders Australia's southern coast?

  28. β€’

  30. β€’
    Are the highways free or are they toll roads?
    Suggested by Β  @andersun
  31. β€’
    No tolls in Western Australia
  32. β€’
    Will you eat a banana from the back before you arrive?
    If yes, will you eat it because you are hungry or just to get Mum to stop offering it?

  33. β€’
    @andersun because you asked!!
  34. β€’

    We use high octane which is $1.51 per liter today. $1.33 per liter for regular unleaded. Does that even make sense?
  40. β€’
    What will I dream about tonight?
    (Since I'm falling asleep now on Friday night and you're currently driving on tomorrow/Saturday, you should already know what happened in the past, right?)
    Suggested by Β  @andersun
  41. β€’
    @andersun you'll dream of an Aussie road trip eating Vegemite and being taunted by a 60-something trying to force feed you bananas! Enjoy!
  42. β€’
    What do Aussie long-haul trucks look like?
    One trailer? Two trailers? Three?
    Suggested by Β  @andersun

    My daughter like me to do her cardio barre videos with her when we're together..Does mum ever do yoga with you?
    Suggested by Β  @cvlop61
  50. β€’
    Funny story @cvlop61! I vowed to never do yoga with my mum ever again (years ago) when during savasana (meditation) she leans over, taps me on the shoulder and says 'what are we meant to be doing?'
    My sister is now a yoga teacher and has been working with my mum's overactive mind!!
