Mindy Kaling, Bill Cosby + Chris Rock Walk Into A Car AKA Things I'm Bringing on Our Adult Road Trip

I don't always give my husband enough credit. Sure, he tells me and our kids that we smell like farts and sometimes leaves for Texas with our only pair of car keys in his bag, but that aside, he's a pretty rad + even romantic guy, so rad and so romantic, in fact, that he's planned a little surprise getaway for JUST. THE. TWO. OF. US. this coming weekend.

Did I say the kids were coming?  No. Because they're not.  Do I sound excited?  Yes. Because I am. Kids, if you're reading this then one, I'm really impressed because I didn't think you could read, and two, I still love you but sometimes Mommy likes to sit by the pool without having to let you blow your nose into my fingers.

Although I don't know where we're going, I do know we'll be in the car for six hours (which means we're not going to Medieval Times), so I've already started planning the party that will be our car ride.  Here's who (and what) I've got lined up:

Mindy Kaling's Questions I Ask When I Want To Talk About Myself


A friend at work got this in their Pop Sugar box a million months ago + didn't want it, so I snatched it up faster than you can say, "freeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!".  I'm hoping one of the questions requires us to stop at Krispy Kreme for doughnuts.

Bill Cosby's To Russell, My Brother, Whom I Slept With

I could drive to Mars listening to Bill Cosby. I feel the same way about Bill Cosby as I do about Tom Hanks, which is to say that I would let them go to second base.  For this particular car ride I've selected To Russell, My Brother, Whom I Slept With, which he recorded 45 years ago.  That's the equivalent of saying something today that people will still find funny in 2058. Can you imagine saying something that timelessly funny? I can't, unless you're saying "hamster".

Chris Rock's Bigger & Blacker

Chris Rock always makes me laugh, so I've downloaded Bigger & Blacker for the trip, too.  It's a throwback to 1999, a year in which I did a few un-funny things, like dye my hair red and wear sweater vests.

Ps- here is one thing we won't be doing on our road trip, in addition to smelling my son's armpits and pretending to pass out.
