Amping up the crazy for you this week

It's been awhile since I exposed some crazy to you, so I thought this was as good a time as any to come clean about a few more things.

1. I tend to drop packages off to be mailed around 5:45 p.m. That just happens to be the pick-up time for both FedEx AND UPS at my mailing store. And every single time I drive up and see both trucks there -- my beloved Brown and the shiny white (less charming) FedEx truck -- I automatically think, "There's a smackdown going on in there."

I don't know why, but I always think I'm gonna walk in the store and there's gonna be an AWK.WARD staredown happening at the counter. I know they're better than that (and here's some proof)(I love that story), but sometimes I want to sit in my van and wait 'til one of them leaves so I don't have to go in and breathe all that stressful air. HELP ME. Oh wait. I just watched my Brown video and all of a sudden I'm all better. It has magical healing powers, I tell you!

2. I am DYING to know what it's like inside cement trucks. I pass this cement company every day on my way home from work, and I see a line like this:

How does all the cement not get stuck in there? How does the spinning part not eventually just become one big block of cement? What do they use to clean them out? Because I could use some of whatever it is around my house in several areas. I'm not bothered enough by any of this to Wiki or Google it, mind you. I'd much rather just ask the pointless questions on my blog.

3. Sometimes I'm just watching TV or driving to work and all of a sudden I'm like, "I wonder what Amy Grant and Vince Gill are doing right now." Or, "I wonder if Steve Carell is on the set at The Office at this very moment breaking during a scene and making them shoot it all over again." I don't spend ALL my time wondering what my favorite celebrities are doing, but I'm just gonna come out and say that it happens a few times a week. Keri Russell, carpenter husband Shane Deary and adorable baby River, WAZZUP IN BROOKLYN?

When I was little my dad told me that cement truck drivers carry a bag of sugar in their truck in case they get stuck somewhere in traffic and the cement is getting hard. Apparently, if you put sugar in the cement it will slow down the hardening process.
I have no idea if this is true but it's what I tell my kids and it's what my daddy told me. :)
Have a fabulous day.

I watched an episode of Dirty Jobs once about the people that have to clean out the cement trucks. They have to crawl inside the truck from the top and then hose it down with a strong pressure washer type thing.

My only thought was that the people who clean out the inside of cement trucks are probably very rarely caught just standing around on the job!
