Multitasking is difficult sufficient on its personal, however consuming whereas driving is in a complete completely different league. A sticky league. A crumbly league. Fortunate for you, backseat driver and columnist Alex Beggs has solutions to all your questions on meals within the automotive (and there have been a lot of them).
How far ought to the passenger go in serving to the driving force eat? —Drew’s Clearly Driving
It’s by no means too far to feed the driving force, particularly when there are nuggets in want of a dip in honey mustard. Because the passenger I’ll do no matter it takes to maintain each these fingers on the wheel. One other nugget?
Is it okay to spit my cherry pits out the window? —Jeez, Jess
Relies upon which route the wind is blowing, however why not spit ’em into an previous McDonald’s cup prefer it’s a spittoon and also you’re a hardened brothel madam who’s seen issues she will be able to’t unsee?

Am I the one one consuming sushi with chopsticks whereas driving? —Musing Margaret

Is it acceptable to peel and eat hard-boiled eggs whereas driving? Asking for a buddy. —Frowned Upon Fern
No. Hazard. Peel the egg earlier than you go and eat it then too so you may sprinkle recent salt on each chunk. I really like automotive meals, however typically I’m wondering if our delusions of effectivity start to cloud the easy joys of actuality. Eat that chilly, wobbly egg like it is best to, over the kitchen sink. You don’t at all times need to be multitasking.
