The junk in my trunk
Kelly Waldron had a story the other day about how ill-prepared your average motorist is for winter weather. Instead of things like warm blankets, flashlights, first-aid kits, we tend to have things we don't need, like a leftover gorilla suit still in our trunk from Halloween. You can read her full story here.
We put this to the test yesterday and took calls for nearly an hour from people proving the point. The lady with the viking hat. The guy who went to a bachelor party half a year ago and still had anatomically correct inflatable dolls in his vehicle. I ran out to my car, popped the trunk, and brought in just a fraction of the crap that's in my trunk which doesn't need to be there. As you can see in the picture, my fiancee's hair care products, my kid's stuffed animal, a ton of board game cards, and a mysterious plastic hand on a stick aren't going to do me much good when I'm caught in a snowbank.
