Where were we? It didn’t matter, I just wanted to get home. I wanted to sleep in my bed, do a load of laundry, watch crime shows, eat anything but something fast. Car fever had set in, we drove around looking for an adventure, but the little town off the highway shut down early, even on a Friday. We bickered about where we should go for dinner, then laughed when we found ourselves at Shoney’s. Jeff dared me to order their seafood buffet and I did, but later regretted it when tiny hives erupted on my cheek. We crossed the street to our temporary home for the evening. The pool glowed a shocking green, almost fluorescent as the sun set and I started to cry. A sunset over the open road tugs my heartstrings every time.
