Backseat Driver

Backseat Driver

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay

Spontaneous. Just a thought.

Sometimes,
Emotions take up the role 
of a backseat driver
while Logic drives drunk, 
ready to crash...

I am a back seat driver for my sins. I cringe sitting next to my spouse driving and I can't help opening my mouth when it would be better closed. In all I like to feel in control, and that's not just when I'm in a car. When I read your poem Dr Y, I started looking inwardly. Too late to change now.

I love your tricky bit of logic! Emotions as backseat driver -- very catchy idea. Logic driving drunk -- almost as snappy an idea. Even tho your axioms apply to real life, I find this to be more of a poem where I marvel at your thought puzzles, more than engaging in deep thought (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

What a cool little aphorism type poem. I feel like we are living in a time of high emotion in general, and it is impacting the way we make decisions that will shape the future. Your reminder is excellent because it is so easy to become too influenced by one side or the other and miss some important connections between logic and emotion.

Things always seem to function best in balance, for sure. Nice to read your work!

yes, they do argue...Logic says don't tell me where to go...and emotion asks.."what's your problem? you are supposed to be the sensible one...and you drive drunk? what is the logic in that?"
