No cute little graffic because lazy.
Anyhow... I'm out on the East Coast this week visiting My Knight. His job is rather lacking in the days allowed off department, unfortunately, but we make it work and make the most of his days off and the time when he's not working.
Today he had to go into work (2nd shift), his mom was at work, his dad was at work, and his brother was at work. Fortunately, they have an extra car and after receiving permission to drive it, I set off in to the great unknown to do some errands for our adventure we're embarking on tomorrow.
I swear for the first 30 minutes I felt like no one had ever let me drive alone before.
"What, how does this car work? Where is the key?"
"I'll just stop in a Dunkin' Donuts and get coffee. That'll totally help."
"Okay, good thing I have this GPS with me. How the heck do you work a GPS?"
"Forget going to the grocery store, CVS and the Dollar Store. I don't know those people. I know Wal-Mart. I'll find a Wal-Mart."
"How the heck am I supposed to know if the GPS is telling me the truth? What if this isn't the closest Wal-Mart? What if it dumps me in the middle of no where?"
"OH MY GOSH I DON'T KNOW HOW TO DRIVE HILLS NO ONE TOLD ME THE HILLS." (Hey, I'm from Illinois. Cut me some slack)
"Okay, this is better now - WHAT THEY HECK THEY ARE PUTTING ME ON THE HIGHWAY???? DO THEY KNOW I'VE NEVER DRIVEN HERE BEFORE?"
"Well. Missed that turn."
"Now I'm on a barely wide enough for two cars road. I'm going to get axed by a toothless Rhode Islander."
"Dang it I sound like my mom the time she swore she was going to get shot by a toothless Tennessee hillbilly."
"Oh praise the Lord, it's Wal-Mart! I'm alive!"
The drive home was much calmer.
