Nascar Driver in Training

Yesterday, my friend Becky called and asked us to meet her and her son at Wal-Mart to check out the Nascar simulator. After standing in line for an hour and watching all the kids try it (including Richard who finished the game in first place) she harped on me... they all did... about hopping on and playing.

I didn't want to because a) I had a dress on and b) I forgot to put underwear on and c) they stress me out. After many minutes of pressure, I finally gave in. The little guy working the unit didn't want to put the harness on me because of the skirt but I made him to it anyways because that thing turns and tilts with the 'road' and you can fall out.

I didn't realize Becky was taking pictures. I was totally engulfed in the game... sweating bullets and white knuckles.

This morning, I get to work and a mass email was sent out with this message:

So, I was in Walmart yesterday, doing a little shopping and Blake said, “Hey mom, the Coke Nascar simulator is here – but there’s some crazy lady who won’t let anyone else have a turn!” See attachment…

She had attached this picture to the email.

If it's truly realistic, it will shower you with flying metal and broken glass if you crash, not to mention flinging into the lingerie section.

This entry had me laughing out loud from the instant I saw the picture.

I see you've chosen the very popular 12-4 hand positioning on the wheel. Or are you in the middle of turn four? ;-)

Driving in heels :) Love it! You are exactly what NASCAR needs. Can you imagine the ratings spike?

Both of you have me laughing my butt off! I can just picture me being flung off that thing straight into the clothing racks.

I think I was in the middle of a turn... those were the most stressful points for me. That, and trying to avoid accidentally driving thru the pit area instead of staying on the raceway.

Someone here made a comment about the heels... and racecars... hmmm ;)

thanks for the comments! now the humiliation in Wal-Mart was all worth it :)

In heels no less, but I guess I'm not the only one to have noticed that.

Danica Patrick? Forget it.

Give me Kerry in Pink every time.

The neck seems to be better.
