Maria Shriver Driving Like A Drunk Person?
Her marriage has always fascinated me. She, from the most famous liberal family of Democrats in our entire country....and Arnold, who has risen through the Republican ranks to become Governor of California. I bet when Tom Brokaw introduced them, he had no idea he'd attend their wedding. What a match! It must be interesting around their kitchen table, huh?
Maria has reported the news, written 6 books, sponsored women's conferences, campaigned for Presidents and Senators, supported Alzheimer research, and promoted her mother's Special Olympics...all while raising 4 children, now ages 12 to 20. And she is First Lady of California.
But right now she's in trouble with the law. Rather she is in trouble with her husband's law. And she is "caught on film". OMG! I am so glad no one is following me around with a camera everywhere I go just waiting to catch me messing up. It seems Gov. Arnold Schwarzeneggar has passed a new law in California that you cannot be on a cell phone while driving, and, guess what! She was! He said he would "deal with her at home", or something like that. :)
I totally support this law. I'm just teasing Maria this morning. The Governor needs to have a talk with me too. If I lived in California I would be in a cell with his wife. I need to do better.
Do you use your cell phone in the car? 'Fess up. Do you text while driving? They say driving and talking on the phone, even hands free, is as risky as drunk driving. Now that puts a new perspective on things doesn't it. I bet other distractions like eating a sandwich, putting on lipstick and mascara, playing with your hair, smoking, turning around to swat at the kids, are all as bad as drunk driving. We better be careful next time we hit the road! There are a lot of us out there driving like drunk people.
