I am prone to motion sickness. however I can read aloud to Mr. D if I am riding in the Big Red Pickup Truck. I think this has something to do with being high enough to see the horizon and not the road (this truck is Very Big).
however the downside of getting used to this is now I tend to get carsick riding in The Fancy Sports Car.

People who don't read are like a rare, weird species to me. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that I don't really *like* people who don't read. Call me a snob, call me a bitch, whatever, I don't care.

I missed this motion sickness discussion of which you speak, but I can't read in ANY moving vehicle without getting sick. This includes airplanes. Ask me how bad THAT sucks.
Oh, and dude! My boy child, just this week, decided all on his own to begin a study of the Greek alphabet! I shite thee not! Weirdness abounds.

My dh gets so motion sick, it's awful.
For me, not him. He always has to drive, and he's a champion futzer. ACK! Just back the car out of the driveway already! Quit with the going back into the house 11 times for stuff; fiddling with the mirrors, adjusting the seat -- JUST DRIVE.
Then, on trips, I have THREE children to manage; our 2 little boys and him. He's done the prune thing too with dramamine "Is 3 too many, 2 not enough?" and then goes into the sleep of the dead just in time to disembark. Once, in a fit of pique, I almost left him slumped and snoozing in the window seat. "Let him wake up in Baltimore - that'd fix him!" But I needed the Sherpa, so I gave him a poke in the slats and bellowed BEER! That woke him up!
And I LOVE Coen Bros movies! And too funny; MEANSTRAL cramps? Or those really, really mean-bad MENSTRUAL cramps?

My kids can read greek. It scares me.
