Where do these questions come from?

Standard

So we’re driving home from the concert tonight and my mind is wandering all over the place, from how many words I wrote today (zilch) to how when I know I’m going to get a bad headache my “thermostat” goes whacky and my body will actually get different temperature zones (yep, there’s one coming on, I’ve got the Arctic in one spot and the Amazon in another).  Then I’m thinking about how fast 50 miles an hour must have seemed a hundred years ago and how most people never traveled faster than a buggy’s pace, and how sound changes when it’s compressed (think train whistle).  And then I think, if I go fast enough will my thoughts sound different?

That kind of thinking reminds me of Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey, you know, along the lines of “Better not take a dog on the Space Shuttle, because if he sticks his head out when you’re coming home his face might burn up.”  :)
