Delilah Does Dallas (Contest)
Saturday, August 2nd, 2014

Watch where your gutter-mind is goin’! πŸ™‚

I’m on the road today, heading to Dallas with my dd, to pick up the 10-year-old who has been spending a month with her daddy in San Antonio. So I’ll be stuck in a car for the nine-hour round trip. Any suggestions for things we can do on our trip that will help us while away the hours? Dream up the usuals, but have some fun with your suggestions, too! I’ll give away a $5 Amazon giftΒ card for the “best” suggestion.

    Pick a car going by and if you can see the people inside, create a ridiculously dramatic/comedic story and pass it back and forth… You’ll start then your dd picks up and so forth…

    Have a list of all the states and see if you can see license plates from all the states on the list as you are driving.

    LISTEN TO AN AUDIO BOOK, THEN WHILE LISTENING, PICK A WORD, SEE IF YOU CAN FIND THAT WORD ON A BILLBOARD, LICENSE TAG ETC. GIVE A TIME LIMIT, PERSON WHO FINDS IT FIRST PICKS THE NEXT WORD IN THE BOOK YOUR LISTENING TOO FOR THE NEXT ONE TO FIND. MAKE IT INTERESTING AND FUN.

    My mom and dad and siblings and I would go on long car trips and read all the highway signs backwards to see what what’s the silliest. Try reading Cincinnati Ohio backwards and see how much you laugh!

    I love to read road signs! And if I find any that can be made dirty, I go for it. And if the kids aren’t in the car, I end up practicing my dirty talk. But, you must incorporate the road signs into the dirty talk. Some of the results are hysterical!

    Do you have a travel boggle or scrabble game. You can pass it around and make up silly words to see who can get the goofiest one.
    DVD’s are always good, but not so much for the driver.

    I love to sleep in the car πŸ˜‰ I’ve been doing that since I was a baby & it hasn’t changed all these years later. πŸ˜†

    My dad would always have us look for a purple car with pink pokadots. So maybe find the cars with the most unique colors.

    What I ended up doing to entertain my daughter who was driving was looking at one of the those entertainment news sites that writes articles like, “Ten Stars Who Are Horrible People.” Kel and I are now educated as to who has had the worst plastic surgery, who is the most disgusting, who has had the most tragic past, etc. Since we love entertainment gossip, we whiled away hours!

    But I do appreciate the suggestions. As we have another road trip coming up on Tuesday, we will give some of these a try!
