Frequently Asked Questions of a Tumbleweed

Q. Do people really ever ask you a question?
A. No.

Q. What year, make and model truck do you and Himself own?
A. A 1999 Freightliner Century Class with over 1 million miles on it. Fully equipped with a generator, for idle reduction and fuel saving purposes and a Jeannie Bottle.

Q. What is a Jeannie Bottle?
A. My bunk area, so named after the I Dream of Jeannie TV show. It is the only girly spot in the whole truck and it's filled with lots of sparkle, satin and shine.

Q. Why hasn't Himself left on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere, yet?
A. Ha! This is a question I actually do get frequently! There really is no good answer. I am a complete lunatic and sometimes want to get away from my own self! He may be in it for the PB&J sammiches.

Q. Don't you ever get bored?
A. Not really. We have XM Satellite Radio and listen to a lot of NPR shows, BBC, music or Audio Books. I look up all sorts of things online, while we are driving past them, which is fun. I read, I write, I annoy.

Q. Why can't you speak German yet? You've been "learning" for years.
A. I have a brain the size of a walnut. 

Q. How many miles do the Tumbleweeds drive in a week?
A. 2,000 to 3,000

Q. Don't you think it's kind of vain and or egotistical to have a blog?
A. Yes. I am a horribly selfish person with a lot of time on my hands and this beats talking Himself to death until he does throw me out of the truck.

Q. Do your elbows really go backwards?
A. Yes!

Q. How come you haven't been crowned winner of the internet yet?
A. The Universe is trying to keep me down.

Q. What are you going to do when you quit being a professional passenger?
A. Mental breakdown, most likely.
