Top ten things I would eat in your car

  1. Coffee. It always finds a way out of the cup.

  2. Hot soup. Many people drink it like coffee. Same effects.

  3. Tacos. "A food that can disassemble itself without much help, leaving your car looking like a salad bar,"

  4. Chili. Dangerous drips and slops down the front of clothing.

  5. Hamburgers. Grease, ketchup, mustard on your hands, your clothes and the steering wheel.

  6. Barbecue. Spicy and dicey. There is the temptation to lick your fingers. More grease on the steering wheel.

  7. Fried chicken. Ditto. Grease coats everything you touch.

  8. Jelly or cream-filled doughnuts. Dangers relate to oozing while cruising. Raspberry jelly stains difficult to remove.

  9. Soft drinks. Prone to spills and sudden fizzing if car makes sudden movements. Cola fizz in the nose is perilous while driving.

  10. Chocolate. Tempting but treacherous. Try to clean it off the steering wheel and you're likely to end up swerving.

  11. Beer or Wine.  Always the treat for a real driver.
