How to make a traffic jam fun

While in Chilean wine country, Rachel, Jason, Janie, and I came up with a foolproof way to make your next traffic jam awesome.  Take notes, people.  You'll definitely want to remember this next time you're stuck going 5 mph during rush hour and start cursing the minivan in front of you with a stick figure family on it's back windshield.

Step 1:  Ensure driver of the vehicle has consumed much liquid.

Step 2:  Remind driver of this consumption when traffic comes to a stop so that he/she realizes a toilet is needed, yet none is available.

Step 3:  Convince driver that a real toilet is not necessary, and the side of the road will work just fine.

Note the absence of a driver
Step 4:  Laugh hysterically when traffic starts moving, but your driver is still watering the plants on the side of the highway.

Step 5:  Buy strawberries (or other food product of choice) from someone trolling the side of the road.

Step 6: Laugh harder when traffic starts driving around your still stopped vehicle.

Step 7:  Eat strawberries between fits of laughter.

Step 8:  Laugh harder still when driver returns to vehicle.  Make fun of the driver as long as desired.
