All Things Speedy

It has been Thursday for a whole day, but I've been busy napping and eating bon-bons, like all stay at home moms do when you aren't looking, and so it has taken me a while to answer Terry's questions -- even if they were supposed to be answered with all due haste or something like that.

1) What is the fastest you have ever traveled on land? On water? In the air?

I think the fastest I've gone on land was when I was riding in a heavy Mercedes sedan on the Autobahn and I saw the guy punch it up to about 210 kph, which, according to a handy dandy internet converter, I can tell you is about 130 mph.  

I've never moved very quickly in the water -- I'm not only a slow swimmer, but I've never ridden in any vessels other than canoes, rafts and ferries.   

The fastest I've gone in the air would be in your standard jet, I suppose, though I can't remember which directions move you faster than which others and I've never flown on the Concorde or anything for super-fast speed.  The slowest I've gone in the air, by the way, was in a hot air balloon.

2) Which would you rather attend: Bonneville Speed Week, the Daytona 500 Speedweek, or a private screening of Speed with Sandra Bullock?  

Given how little I care about car racing, I guess I'd want to hang out with Sandra.  She seems like she's be fun to be friends with.  

3) Which would you rather have as a pet: Speedy Gonzales, Speedy, the Kitten Born Without a Pelvis, or Flipper? (Who happens to be ?faster than lightning,? at least according to his theme song.)  

Aquatic animals hold no interest for me.  My brothers and dad are allergic to cats and I have no interest in owning one that requires mere regular litterbox maintenance, so I don't want the kitten.  I guess I'll have to go with Speedy Gonzales, who was indeed a favorite cartoon mouse of mine, although looking back on it, he was an annoying little rodent.  

And so there you haven't it.  I don't go for fast cars and I'm not a fast woman. :)
