Fostering curiosity in kids (and their parents) since 2011

Driving while parenting, Episode VI

The other day while we were driving down one of Chicago’s highway, we were passed by a Hummer. Not just any Hummer, but a special one, one that had been tricked out to sit high up on its axle, like one of those Monster Trucks.

Not the car we saw, but it'll give you the idea. Apparently, jacking Hummers up on their axles is a thing. (Photo: Cardomain.com)

Daddyo, slowing down a tad to allow the souped up Hummer to pull away:  “If I drove one of those, I’d be afraid of tipping because of the really high center of gravity.”

Mommyo, critically: “It can’t be that fuel efficient, either. I mean, that thing’s not very aerodynamic.”

The Seven-Year-Old, sagely: “That explains why the lane behind the Hummer is empty.”

Mommyo: “I guess no one wants to be behind it.”

The Seven-Year-Old: “When it runs out of gas.”
