Not Smart Enough, Apparently...


I might be a fairly intelligent person.
National Honor Society...
Graduated 5th in my class...
In "Gifted & Talented" programs all throughout school...
Proud rider of the short bus and all that...

But I swear these stinking collapsible sun shades 
get the better of me
EVERY. SINGLE. TIME!!!

lol My husband doesn't understand why I leave them just folded in half in the backseat all summer.

This is something that I finally learned how to do, but I'm at a loss to explain it in writing. It has something to do with grasping parallel sides and folding the shade in half lengthwise, which lets it twist itself into a nice set of circles. I always thought I had to do the twisting.

I was unable to figure this all out for myself. Someone actually sat in a hot car with me and tutored me until I finally got it. The bigger the shade, the easier to fold. I still struggle with the little ones that stick onto the side windows with suction cups. Most of the time, I just pitch those into the back seat and let the kids deal with them.
