Ode to the Road – A Tribute to Annoying Random Roadside Things Road trips can be fun, but daily driving can be a chore. Especially if like me, you have to spend hours every day stuck in traffic. Sometimes I find my mind wandering and like to come up with creative back stories for all of those annoying random objects I see during my regular commute.

Why Are Goth Clubs So Cool? I am a responsible adult. I’m 42, married, and have a rambunctious 6 year old little boy.
