Driver's Tan is a road trip poem - nay, a road trip lament. This one goes out to all those people with one tan arm, hopelessly asymmetric till the end of summer. Yuko came up with this poem years ago, and it's been on the list ever since I first heard it. We wanted to share now that it's seasonally appropriate.
By the way,
I spent a bit of time last week making a heating pad out of two $1 bandanas (one for a pillow case), half of a $2 bag of rice, and some chamomile and mint teas that no one was drinking. If you are poor and cold a lot, THERE IS NO REASON YOU SHOULD NOT MAKE ONE OF THESE. Here are the instructions I used (although I segmented the bag and added some tea to make it smell nice), here are some instructions to make one out of an old sock.
