Stella: "Rae, I have the itinerary all set for our trip to Boston."
Rae: "Ok, great. I see that you programmed the GPS, but I think it's broken... it has us heading to Maine"
Stella: "No, it's not broken, I thought we'd take the long way to Boston, from New York... and head up to Maine and go photography hunting for Moose."
Rae: "Ok, sounds great. Let's drive to Boston, pass right by it, make a 10-hour detour to drive up the coast of Maine, see if we can find a Moose, take some photos, and then turn around and head back to Boston by nightfall."
A little sarcasm combined with true love.
Photo to the left shows the heavy traffic on 95 North headed to Maine:
1. Allows Rae to take a nap since she hasn't slept in over 36 hours;
2. Allows Stella to get a great workout in her legs (left leg goes into a state of muscle failure,) while driving a stick shift in heavy traffic for over 3 hours;
3. And saves both Stella & Rae the money that would have been given to the local tanning salon, hence driving topless in the jeep.
Moral of the story: Always look on the bright side!
Sometimes, a simple road trip can turn into a crazy adventure!
