We drove 950 kilometres across the Canadian praires today (which translates into 8,654 miles in Americadia).
Our car grill looks like this:
My brain is mush.
One hour into our journey, however, my neurons were firing slightly faster. I thumb-typed this dialogue into my phone. I wasn’t driving. At least, I don’t think I was.
Vivian was reading a book. I don’t know which one because we had 54 books in our hatchback. I’m not exaggerating.
Here’s the conversation I recorded:
Vivian: “Mom, were you alive in 1932?”
Me: “No. Grandma wasn’t even alive then.”
Vivian: “Dad, were you alive?
My husband: “No.”
Vivian: “Are you sure? Because Niagara Falls froze that year.”
Why wait for hell to freeze over when one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World can?
In more important news, it’s the second annual Blogging All-Star Challenge, which sounds more impressive than it is, kind of like the Toronto Maple Leafs NHL franchise, post 1967. Still, I’ve been drafted alongside some amazing bloggers. You can find me on the cartoon below, drawn by the talented Wes Molebash. I’m the blond of the left, tossing Thing 1 and Thing 2 away.
I’m on Team Rob. As in rhymes with bob, hobnob, inside job, and Punjab (according to rhymezone.com, at least).
Feel free to vote for Team Rob by clicking here. Or not.
Thanks for reading through bug and brain mush.
How’s the state of your neurons these days?
