... is sometimes when you do.
You think you are invincible.
(I've been guilty of thinking I'm invincible.)
But you (and I) should never EVER multitask...when we are driving a vehicle, which is a huge possible death machine.
Yes, this is my annual 'sermon'.

We all think we are immune to disaster/tragedy.

Years ago my twin was handing her child a chicken McNugget and ran into the car in front of her, who was stopped at a stoplight in Katy, TX. Fortunately no one was hurt... except insurance prices.
I was texting my son an innocent text, when I was at Starbucks' drive-thru and ran into a lady's car in front of me. It just caused a 'nick' in her car, so I sent her a check.

I am preaching to myself.
When I hear my phone ring, or my text ding, I am so tempted to find out what is going on.
But I am learning that life is short.
And I don't want to die in perfect health.
Or kill others who are in perfect health.
Please don't multitask in your vehicle.
That's my lecture for today.
