3 Things We Learned This Week (funny, Drivers License, coaching)

Friday Fragments is hosted my Half-Past Kissin' Time for bloggers to post a list of short things on their minds that aren't really enough for a whole post. Here we go:

  1. Field Hockey

    Over at Love or Funny she posted a picture of her daughter all covered from head to toe in a field hockey uniform even including clunky shoes!  I didn't know they dressed in all that protective gear for Field Hockey.  At camp we just played in shorts and t-shirts. 

  2. Driver's License

    My cousin sent me this email:
    I already removed mine. I suggest you all do the same. Now you can see anyone's Driver's License on the Internet, including your own! I just searched for mine and there it was...picture and all! Thanks Homeland Security! Go to the web site, and check it out. It's unbelievable!! Just enter your name, city and state to see if yours is on file. After your license comes on the screen, click the box marked "Please Remove." This will remove it from public viewing, but not from law enforcement. Please notify all your friends so they can protect themselves, too. Believe me they will thank you for it.
  3. Sports Camp

    I was an assistant basketball coach this week and started with 1st and 2nd grade girls then was switched to 6th grade boys (17). I had more fun coaching the girls but more fun watching the boys--they were so good and I felt they should be coaching me! It was HOT every day but the boys were full of energy.

Field hockey is a great but brutal game. Congrats on coaching. It takes a special person to do it and it contributes so much to the kids.

I had no idea about the driver's license thing. Going to check it out right now! THANKS!

Mary said...

Now that just wasn't RIGHT! :D Thanks for the laugh! :D

The driver's license thing is an online joke. But I wonder if they actually do keep your data that you enter in?

Wow, you had sports camp in this heat! You guys are brave! I was melting. Thank God, it's starting to dissipate.

As Renecca points out the driver license look-up is fake. Snopes has a write-up on it and the same link you included here comes from an email they found in 2005. Some emails live for a long time on the internet.

Fun post...too funny on the driver's license.

Laurie Matherne said...

Ann in the UP said...

Aren't you a helpful person, though!

Good likeness on the driver's license, though. Heehee.

I fell for the drivers license joke too so don't feel bad if you tried the link as well. Hope you got a laugh out of it like I did. I just thought it was too funny not to share, especially since I was short on things I learned this week.

I'm gonna poke you!!! I searched my daughter's name and a monkey showed up! Well...she sorta looks like a monkey. ;)

Thanks for the chuckle.
