I’ve been driving a Honda Fit for the better part of three years. In that time, I’ve waved to nearly every other Honda Fit driver that I’ve passed in my travels. In my mind, it’s a ‘camaraderie’ sort of thing. We are all driving the same car, so why not say a quick hello to each other? A friendly passing wave, that’s all I want. Drivers of other car makes and models do it. Motorcycles do it … even bicyclers do it.
SO WHY WON’T THEY WAVE TO ME?
In three years, I can count on one hand how many return waves I’ve received. My favorite was a lady about six months ago that matched my speed in the lane next to me. With a giant smile, she emphatically waved at me and then pointed to her own car and then to mine. Marveling at fact that we were both driving the same car she… Okay, okay — maybe that lady was crazy. But at least she waved.
Seriously, why won’t they wave to me? Am I detestably ugly? Is it not obvious that we’re driving the same car? Is the average age of a Honda Fit driver too high (and female)? Do people just not do the ‘wave’ thing anymore? What is it? I’m developing a complex! I need to know!! Why do you think people won’t wave to me?!
And while we’re on the topic … have you ever been a car waver? Do people ever wave back?
Have you ever daydreamed about being a famous star? Money, adulation, magazine covers, swag, critical acclaim, limos, red carpets, awards, casting couches, stalkers, plastic surgery, paparazzi, rehab – it all sounds so glamorous! But all this means nothing unless you’re invited to appear on Inside the Actor’s Studio. Well, just in case you hit it big and have to face James Lipton and his enormous stack of blue index cards, you should be prepared. So I asked you to answer the questions* that are always asked at the end of the show. Here are your answers:
*The questionnaire concept was originated by French personality Bernard Pivot, after the Proust questionnaire.

It is the most versatile word in the English language, after all. Polt: Fuck. Although if I’m around polite company, I generally just use shit.
