Recently I was driving with my 13 year old niece, Julie. We were coming home from the hospital and she was keeping me company on the drive. We were chatting and enjoying each other's company (at least I was, she was tolerating it LOL!). There was a sign on the side of the road - you know the kind the road dept puts up alerting drivers to road construction. It was telling us that I was going to have merge ahead due to a lane being closed. At the bottom it said savemolives. I thought about it for a while and couldn't figure out why the state was concerned about olives.... I drove on for a few more miles and finally couldn't take it any longer when we saw a second sign just like the first one. I said to Julie, why do we need to save the olives? She looked at me, looked at the sign and said - it's save MO lives. you know Missouri lives - it's a reminder to wear your seat belt and drive safely. I think she thought I was the strangest person on the face of the earth! I felt really stupid after that, but chalked it up to one of my blonde moments.
Now, anytime we get in the car, I remind everyone to save m olives and get buckled up.
