Dear Agony Aunt: I’m getting bored on long car journeys…

Dear Auntie Carol…

How do you keep yourself entertained during long journeys?

Auntie Carol says…

I waited to answer this question until I was on a long journey myself! I’m a method actress, you see. I take my job VERY seriously.

Now that I’m a world famous Agony Aunt, and the #PeoplesPrincess, I keep myself entertained on long journeys by answering readers’ questions with pearls of wisdom. BUT, before I was such a busy national treasure, I had other ways of entertaining myself!

  1. Play games

Eye-spy? Eye WHY! Noughts and crosses? NO more binaries! Hangman? NO – preach love, not death!

These games are tired. This Aunty recommends: ‘The Issues Game’. Try and guess whether a stranger has daddy issues, mummy issues, or internal issues, and explain why. EVERYBODY has got issues!

SEE! A game for intellectuals.

  1. Make a playlist

Look out of the window: smize, smoulder, vogue the backseat down. Get your own music video fantasy!

Points of inspiration include: ‘Same Old Love’ by Selena Gomez, ‘Partition’ by Beyoncé, ‘Telephone’ by Lady Gaga ft. Beyoncé.

Be careful of doing this in an Uber – you might not get five stars if you’re practicing your hairography in the rearview mirror.

  1. Read

Be careful you don’t read for too long otherwise you’ll be tap tap tapping your satnav to redirect you to a hospital because you’ll feel SICK!

“Remember only boring people get bored!”

Next time you’re on a long journey, consider one of these options. Remember only boring people get bored!

Alexa, play ‘Shut Up And Drive’.

Entertain me on my next long journey – ask me a question here!
