Hey, I'm driving 6 hours in April with a carload of kids, all under age 8. Except for one girl, who is a year younger than me but more obnoxious than most of the little ones.

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Dude, did you read what it's like to travel with my group? It's downright frightening.

That's when I would relish my iPod.

Not if I don't want to end up with it covered in spit, throw up, and tooth marks.

I'm so lucky I have an iPhone now. I just hope there's a recharge outlet on the bus

yeah, I have the ipod touch, but I'm gonna have to hide it the whole trip for fear one of the little kids will steal it or something.

Get special headphones that have a remote on them and keep the iPod in your pocket the whole time.

I try... I'll probably end up screaming my head off so often that I can't talk anymore, and then the kids will leave me in peace because i'm "too boring for the likes of them"

And yes, I have done this before. It takes a lot of yelling, and not a ton of provocation.

I see these kids every single week, so I have an EXTREMELY low tolerance for them. Dangerously low.
