A "Wow" for your Wednesday

Happy Hump Day!!

I had another post planned today, but my dad emailed me the below news clipping yesterday and I couldn't resist sharing...figured we could all use a good laugh today!


In case you can't read the article, it tells the story of a Florida woman who caused a wreck because she was SHAVING WHILE DRIVING...and no she wasn't shaving her underarms, or even her legs-- she was shaving her BIKINI REGION!!  Can you believe it?  

That's not all:  It gets better...her EX-husband was steering from the passenger side as she shaved!  

Her excuse to police was that she was on the way to a date with her boyfriend and wanted to be ready!  

Below is an image of the culprit.  I think she could have worried a little more about other aspects of her look-- like those roots!


What's the craziest thing you've done while driving?

Also, as a side note thanks to The Social Knight who gave me the Versatile Blogger award weeks ago.  I've been so busy these last few weeks I completely forgot to add it to a post.  The rules are that you're supposed to link and thank the person that awarded you, share 7 random facts about yourself, and award 5 other bloggers, so here goes!

  1. I'm super organized and can be a tad OCD at times, for example I only write in black pen in my notebooks so that everything looks neat and organized.
  2. I absolutely LOVE rollercoasters!
  3. My full name is Alexandra, but when I was little, I insisted it must be "ALLIEzandra" because, it didn't make sense to have the nickname Allie if Allie wasn't in my full name.
  4. Even though I'm only 5'3, I very rarely wear heels because I'd rather be comfortable.  Flip flops and flat sandals are my go-to in the spring and summertime.  Boots and flats are my go-to in the fall and winter.
  5. Christmas is one of my favorite holidays, but what I love about Christmas is the season, not just the day-- choosing and wrapping presents, decorating the tree, listening to Christmas music, and the kind spirit everyone seems to have is what makes it so special to me.
  6. I still sleep with a bunny named Easteregg that I've had since kindergarten.  He's the same as the bunny on the Easter bonnet I posted here and I received him in my Easter basket after begging to have "a bunny like the one on my hat."  He's even been to Europe!
  7. I often fall asleep during movies.
And now...I'd like to award:  Classic AnnieLulu and DaisySimply Southern, Sweet, Sassy, and ClassySouthern Soul Mates, and A Picture a Day.

  14. That is crazy! I can't believe someone is crazy enough to do that! Oh my gosh, I'm so OCD too! I only use black Sharpie pen in my planner and I only write my class notes in black Sharpie pen, too! Haha I have a mild freak out if I can't find one, there must be at least 8 in my school bag!

  15. Oh my word that woman is crazy!!! I think the craziest thing I've done while driving is probably texting haha! Never shaved sadly. I am sooo OCD about pens too. I freak out if I don't have the one I've been using for days or the one that matches what I've already written in my planner or notebooks! If they don't write the way I want them too I don't use them! And I have definitely taken my baby blanket to Europe too :)

  20. That news story just made me gag! So gross. So weird. So funny.

    And I love Christmas time, too :) The whole season is wonderful. And Easteregg sounds like quite the globe trotter ! He must be very cultured.

  21. What a crazy story! I LOVE rollercoasters too, hopefully I'll be able to visit Kings Dominion & Busch Gardens this summer!

  22. Wow! That's out of control crazy! My friend's mom used to put on mascara while driving, but shaving while driving is on an entirely different level! Yikes :)

    I'm a little OCD about pen color too. And I only use yellow highlighters :)

    Love that you have a bunny named Easteregg, so adorable.

  29. I mean... who doesn't shave while driving?? I don't have a car since I moved to the city post-grad two years ago -- haven't shaved since.

    Makes COMPLETE sense!

    haha! I laughed so hard reading this. What is wrong with people!? Thanks for sharing!

    xoxo
