For those that do not know, I am an Licensed and Certified Insurance Agent and I am normally out and on the road about 17,000 to 21,000 miles a year. I enjoy it!
Yesterday, I had a friend share this article on Facebook and I found it quite humorous! Here is the article (in jest) that proves an important point.
Or if you do not like opening links (because you have a stupid phone, they call it smart but with having used mine for the last 22 months, I just do not believe it) here is the copied article:
BLOOMFIELD, MI—Noting that she had left earlier and would probably be gone for most of the evening, household sources confirmed Wednesday that local mother Diane Walsh has got her thing tonight.
According to Walsh family members, this is the same thing that Mom had mentioned something about at breakfast yesterday. Several reports also indicated that Mom usually goes to the thing with her friends from high school or maybe those ones from work.
“She’s usually there for a few hours,” said daughter Christina Walsh, 15, adding that tonight’s thing is definitely different from that other thing she does once in a while. “It’s at the community center or YMCA or something like that.”
Family sources told reporters that though she often gets picked up at their house for the thing, Mom was taking the car this time. In addition, 12-year-old Derek Walsh verified rumors that Mom probably won’t be back until later and that someone else will have to empty the dishwasher while she’s away.
Sources did confirm that dinner should be in the fridge.
“I thought Mom was here, but then I remembered she’s at her thing,” said 18-year-old Jeremy Walsh, recalling only that Mom said the thing was at 7. “I don’t think it’s that book thing she used to go to—she doesn’t do that anymore.”
Acknowledging the large tote bag that the 48-year-old is usually spotted with while leaving for the thing, family members said tonight’s thing is likely related to the pile of stuff that Mom is always working on in the study when they arrive home from school. Household sources concluded this is the same stuff Mom is always saying she wished she had more time to work on, if not for the all the other stuff that she has to do around the house.
Those close to the situation were unable to pinpoint exactly when Mom first began going to this thing, noting only that she once mentioned how glad she was that Janet got her to start going, and that she’s definitely been doing it for a while.
Recent reports also suggest that Mom was super upset the last time she had to miss the thing.
“Mom really likes going to her thing,” said Christina Walsh, adding that she has to get a ride to volleyball practice from Stephanie on nights Mom’s at her thing. “Before she heads out to it, Mom’s always in a really good mood.”
“And it seems like she’s always talking about whatever happened at the thing the next day,” she added.
At press time, Dad, who wasn’t totally sure when tonight’s thing would be over, confirmed that Mom would call on her way home.
(The Onion, March 5, 2014)
I am always running (actually driving or I would be in AWESOME shape) all over East Tennessee and in the next week I will even be running up to Virginia. I think that qualifies as going “Somewhere” for my “Thing”
My “Thing” is appointments (currently helping as many people enroll in Health Care before March 15th, the cut off date to avoid a penalty for most people).
With driving that many so miles a year it is important for your family to at least have an idea of where you are:
Tim Buck Two
Edge of the World
Where the Sidewalk Ends
If something happens to you (medical emergency, auto accident) it is important for First Responders to be able to reach your family. (yes, I did hide a lesson in here).
Please pay attention to your family or like my mom does, she marks it on the calendar (ever since I was a little kid, I do not live with her now).
Thank you for reading my service announcement and if you have any questions about Health Care, please give me a call!
