Here’s my second You Are Here Stories post, filed under the theme for January, Laughter and Place.
Their husbands didn’t get it.
Lauren, Mary, Suzy, and I made plans to meet at Beth’s house near Chicago for a long April weekend. Lauren would drive in from Indianapolis, and Mary could handle the six-hour drive from St. Louis. Naturally, Suzy and I decided to make the trip to Beth’s together, from Pennsylvania.
Which is why we booked flights to St. Louis so that we could drive north to Beth’s house with Mary. Because, road trip.
This is what their husbands (and probably mine, if I had one) could not understand. It’s all about the journey.
