Ding Ding Ding

The way I see it, there are two kinds of people in the world:

Those who get in their cars and buckle their seat belts,

And those who hop in the car, drive down the street, and fumble with the seatbelt after they hear that annoying Ding, Ding, Ding…

I mean really, you KNOW it’s going to go Ding, Ding, Ding…

You’ve done this ten thousand times.

Did you forget?

Or is it that you just like to live dangerously. Get a little adrenaline rush as you are going down the block, testing yourself with a little dare, to see if you can manage to get it buckled before you crash into that stop sign on the corner.

For those of you who are single, I suggest that this is a great test to find out what kind of person you are dating.

The bucklers are the conservative ones. They think ahead. They are always prepared.

The fumblers are the risk takers. They are the exciting ones, but they are also the ones who will need to be reminded to take out the trash every day of their lives.

These are the folks who don’t even think about doing laundry until the moment they realize they have no clean underwear, and only have twenty minutes to get ready for work.

There’s a risk taker for you! A regular Indiana Jones!

The excitement and thrill of it all. The adventure of beating the clock as he races to find the treasure….that “almost clean” pair buried in the dirty clothes pile.

“Eureka! The treasure of all treasures! The golden BVD’S!”

Quickly, without a moment to loose, he throws them on, jumps in the car…

And spills coffee all over himself as he crashes into the stop sign while cursing that blasted Ding, Ding, Ding…

At that moment, the words of his mother seem strangely sage:

“Don’t forget to put on clean underwear; you never know when you might get in an accident.”
