This week, my family went to Seaside without me. That sounds sad, and it slightly is, missing out on the beach time — but I’ve also enjoyed one of the most relaxing and fun weeks I’ve had in many years. One of the fun things I got to do was take Friday off work to take my friend Teresa on a roadtrip.
Now, I’m not a huge roadtrip person. Very long drives just feel very long to me. If I’m going to spend time with a friend, I’d prefer to play a game or go for a hike. But extenuating circumstances have arisen: Teresa has a broken leg, and has to keep all weight off her leg for many weeks. I suggested this roadtrip to get her out of the house.
