Despite all the planning for our trip to the northern tundra, I can't shake the feeling that I am forgetting something. I watched the WGN weather report today, and they said it might snow Sunday. That's the day we'll be driving back to Chicago from Milwaukee. Very scary. I'm not sure if it would be better to let me with my bad eyesight, or Mark, the worst driver in the whole wide world do the driving. (When I say Mark is bad, I mean worse than an Asian girl in San Francisco. Worse than an old fart driving slow in the fast lane with his turn signal on for twenty five miles. Worse than a texting teenager driving daddy's big car. Mark is bad.) Anyway, I think we'll have fun, but I'm going to pack extra blankets, food, and water in the car just in case we slide off the interstate and into a ditch. It might be days before they would find us. Hmmm, maybe I should get a rifle to fight off the wolves and grizzly bears too.
P.S. Yes, I know the bit about Asian girls in San Francisco is somewhat racist. If you live in San Francisco, as I did for a year, and find that it is not true that Asian girls drive poorly let me know. I feel pretty sure about that one, unless there has been a massive change in the last thirty five years.
