A friend of mine likes to take “trip minutes”… a play-by-play of how the trip went. I kept the minutes to strictly the times when J and I (and Ed) were in the car. So here’s your glimpse into what happened on our drive to/ from GA.
1:45pm – Started Driving
2:15pm – called Mother
3:00pm – noticed Ed has chewed off ends of neckerchief (he is still quite handsome)
3:17pm – Talked about old people playing golf. Included actions
3:20pm – Broke down and started listening to talk radio
4:04pm – Kenley, NC has Caribou. Also, Ed peed.
4:25pm – J just got yelled at for playing a full set of air drums. While driving. In the rain.
4:29pm – Tornado warning. Advised to seek shelter.
5:18pm – Decided on future hypothetical heir’s name.
