If this article sounds like I’m trying to sell you the idea of AudioBooks, that’s because it is! I’ve tried to convince ALL my friends and family to start using Audio Books because I whole heartedly believe in them – please read on to see why…
How many hours a day do you sit in traffic?
For the average person, I’m guessing it’s about 1 hour to work, and 1 hour home. That’s about 10 hours a week!
Can you IMAGINE if you had 10 hours a week to read that book you’ve always wanted to read?
Can you IMAGINE no longer feeling like traffic is a waste of time?!
About 4 years ago I was asked to attend a week-long course that meant I would spend about 4 hours a day sitting in traffic. (For those people living in Johannesburg, I was travelling from Bedfordview to Pretoria during rush hour – ABSOLUTELY PAINFUL!!!).
On Monday evening, I got home and refused to go to bed until I had found a few audiobooks to listen to so that I could at least say that my time spent sitting in traffic was not wasted. And that is how I found the website Audible.com
If you’ve scanned this site before, you might know I’m a member of OUTsurance.
The reason for that is because they’re way, WAY cheaper (for me) than ANY other insurance provider in South Africa. I know this because I phoned around for a couple of quotes recently and I ended up moving all my insurance to OUTsurance.
This means that pyjamas, underwear, sheets, blankets, socks, etc. do not need to be ironed.
Why would they need to be ironed anyway?
Well, I’ve heard MANY horror stories about how flies and other bugs can land on clothes that are hung out to dry, and if they aren’t ironed, may have deposited eggs/larvae that may work their way into your skin! So anything that is hung out to dry must get ironed, in my opinion.
I’m sure a lot of people didn’t believe me, but how about this article on the Daily Mail website:
Is it just me or is time REALLY flying these days? It’s almost Fathers Day, AGAIN! 🙂
So, just a reminder that Fathers Day in America and South Africa happens to land on the 3rd Sunday in June every year, so this year, it’s on June 21st.
Don’t forget to check out my article on Father’s Day 2009 Gift Ideas. And, PLEASE add any ideas you have in the comments at the bottom. If you just add what you gave (or received) last year, that would be one more idea for the hundreds of other visitors to that article.
