ever sit next to a Genghis Khan descendent? Or have one sitting behind you? Your seat will be taken over by half and your feet will be kicked out from beneath you.....so what does a Texas girl do? Well, you take over the range that is rightfully yours........when I see that GK is sitting next to me I fight for my half of the seat.......I don't move or budge and I push back.... call it the range wars..eventually the hint is taken unless he wants to get real chummy and he doesn't........these borders are not being breached.......now as for the feet I kick back......works for me.....I hate doing it but turning around and giving looks does not work....sorry I don't speak enough Russian that would make the person understand.......yes, it's always the male species.....they do understand a kick however......

ok, I've digressed.........as far as GB is concerned I want the life vests any day esp. if I have children with me.......I got into an argument with my hubby over this exact topic today..........he said the same thing......"what are the chances of?" and I countered with "what were the chances of the Titanic sinking? but it did and there were not enough life rafts.......I'll take a life vest over a flotation device but both would be nice to have on hand........hope that none of us are ever in that situation, however
