Drivers license

1) This song is about a girl who just got her drivers license. Who taught you to drive? I took high school drivers ed

2) Do you like your drivers license/state ID photo? I look smug--I can get a new one next year

3) Think back to the first ticket you received. How old were you, and what was it for? I have never been ticketed--I've only been pulled over once but it was for an expired registration tag

4) In this week's song, Olivia Rodrigo is brokenhearted, driving through her boyfriend's neighborhood, certain that he has taken up with the sophisticated blonde girl. When it comes to romance, do you have a jealous streak? I've never had a need to

5) Olivia grew up in Temecula, California. Temecula is home to 40 wineries and dozens of tasting rooms. Have you ever attended a wine tasting? no, and sadly I won't ever go to one--a medication I take doesn't mix well with alcohol

6) Her first on-screen appearance was in a commercial for Old Navy stores. Old Navy is owned by the same company as Banana Republic, Gap and Athletica. Have you done any of your holiday shopping at one of those stores? (Yes, their websites count.) Now that Old Navy is size-inclusive I have been giving them a lot of my business, for myself and for gifts

7) She went on to star in projects for Disney studios. That's also how pop stars Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Miley Cyrus, and Christina Aguilera got started. Arguably the first teen star created by Disney studios was Annette Funicello. Do you remember her? vaguely

8) "Drivers License" was one of this year's most popular songs. One of this year's most popular books is John Grisham's The Judge's List. Do you expect to do much reading between now and the end of the year? If so, what's on your TBR (to be read) list? I'm hoping to do some more reading before the year's end--I have this list I'm working on

9) Random Question: What is the longest line you ever stood in, and was it worth it? maybe not the longest line but the slowest line was customs when I was flying home from Spain, the group of people ahead of me were all thoroughly searched but when I finally made it to the head of the line I got waved through--it was worth it!

#5 -- My nephew just turned 22 and doesn't drink because of his meds. Because he's a college student, his doctor went out of his way to explain that if he HAS to drink, my nephew shouldn't take the meds 12 hours before his first drink and 12 hours after his last one. He decided drinking just wasn't worth the work.

#8 -- Good luck with the TBR. You're a reading machine!

I had no idea that Old Navy finally has become size-inclusive. May have to check it out. Thanks for the tip!

I will also have to check out Old Navy if they've something besides small sizes. I don't drink because my father is an alcoholic, but also because of my meds.

Wow, you got waived through. That was lucky.

I did not realize Old Navy was size inclusive! Thank-you for sharing that, I am going to check them out again!
Did I tell you about how I tried to make the Christmas chick-lit books into thrillers as I was reading them last year? As I was trying to predict I had the ladies getting kidnapped. I had to stop myself a couple of times and tell myself these are Christmas stories...not thrillers...LOL!!! I haven't read anything in a bit, so I have some books on hold and I will just read those. Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend.

I need to check out old Navy. I usually buy a few summer clothes there. I got some really cute things there for Hawaii a few years ago. I have gained some weight in the middle since then!

Honestly, I think any reason to avoid alcohol can be a good one! ;)
