Road Trip

I went on a bit of a road trip this weekend with my mother for a family friend’s bridal shower. I always like road trips, if only because you come back with weird stories.

For example, when I go on road trips or extended local drives with one particular friend to somewhere we’ve never been, it is always an adventure. We generally get lost for a short amount of time, or stuck in horrendous traffic, or run across some unusual event or roadside display. It’s quite entertaining.

This weekend, I learned the primary difference between driving somewhere with my mother, versus the same trip with my father.

Mother:

“I’ll drive, Mom.”

“Okay.”

*ten seconds later*

“Watch the traffic, hun. Oo, brake lights. Curb! More brake lights. Don’t mess with the radio while you’re driving. Where are the tissues? What’s that clown doing? Careful of the trucks. Did you see how close he got? He was practically in our backseat! Brake lights!”

“Mom, relax, I got this.”

“I know you do, honey.”

Father:

“I’ll drive, Dad.”

“Okay. ZZ Top?”

“Sure.”

*synchronized head bopping*

“You know where we’re going right? Good. I’m gonna take a nap.”

Have you all been on any interesting trips lately? Tell me about them in the comments!
