For the record, I am not one someone that jumps at ever chance to make a long drive. However, I have made a few in my life…. okay, probably more than a few. They can be gruelling, but they can show parts of the country you haven’t seen before.
Yesterday, I was anticipating a moderate drive, but I wasn’t looking forward to it. I had had a long day at work, a horrible bus commute home, and I just didn’t relish the idea of the drive ahead–even though I was sure I had to do it.
In a spark of brilliance, I asked my girlfriend to come with me. I expected her to say no as she had also had a long week and an almost equally brutal commute. To my surprise, she agreed and we started making plans.
Luckily, the situation evolved and a long drive was not required. However, she still tagged along for the short-ish drive. Perhaps she was looking forward to learning some colourful language by watching me cursing out drivers and construction crews.
It got me to thinking, on a long drive, there really isn’t anything better than company. Of course, a close second is a fantastic playlist–but that’s the subject of another blog.
Have you ever made a long drive? Where did you go and who did you go with?
