WHY it won't run without gas?

I love looking into your life. Too funny.

If you could find a way for the car to keep going and not use gas, you'd be onto something!

Love this!

Give them a couple more years and then you can start quizzing them....where are you going? Who will you be with? How long will you be there? Where are those forms I'm supposed to fill out? Did you give me back my change? Why did the principal leave me a voice mail while I was in a meeting? Why? Why? Why?

Vengeance is yours says the mommy!

CDP, I remember those days when the "car" seat interrogations were plentiful. These days the commentary is more about "how come we have to listen to this friggin music?" or "why does he/she have to sit next to me?"
