Can You Hear Me Now...

As some of you might know, a new law was passed in CA that states that as of July 1st, no one can talk on their cell phone while driving unless they use a headset.

I hate this law.

When I first heard rumors of its passing, I thought, "Oh, no big deal. I've got a bluetooth. This won't affect me at all." But I was wrong. Way wrong.

First, my bluetooth isn't working. It mocks me from my dash. It stares at me saying, "Hey bud. I know you'd love to chat with your friends and family while you cruise around the OC, but I've got more important things to do. Like sit here and be useless." As my friend, David, would say, if this were a sit around and do nothing-a-thon, my bluetooth would be earning a ton of money for cancer. I think I'll change its name to boo-tooth...

Second, I never realized how many phone calls I make while I drive. It amazes me. I've probably only made three phone calls in the past 5 days because every time I want to call someone, I'm driving.

So, to all of my friends, family, and other loved ones; if you haven't heard from me lately, it's because of this wonderful law that my state of residence passed. As soon as I get the money, I'll get a new bluetooth and we can chat...
