roadtrip :: Keith

I don’t understand why everything about religion has to be so complicated; for instance, the guys and I are thinking about driving up for the Pope’s funeral, but if we call it a roadtrip, will it sound like goofing off; and can we drink beer on the way?

Leaving Las Vegas :: 'mouse

The driver of the Ford Explorer (the one with the tricked out stereo) took to the cowboy the minute she realized he’d ditched the scary contraband in exchange for what appeared to be an unlimited supply of hundred dollar bills which he seemed more than happy to spend stocking up on CDs for the long trip east – it also didn’t hurt when Janis gave her a copy of “American Pie,” wished them luck on their road trip, and announced she was going to stay behind for the “American Idol” Las Vegas auditions.

The van pulls out of Boston early with the three of us - me, Steve, and Steve’s wife, who we’d both thought would be staying home, but surprises us with her enthusiasm for the pot roast tour when she quietly slips into the van this morning, slides into one of the back seats and says only, “My bags are on the porch,” which I’ll admit I first thought meant bags of potatoes, but of course ended up meaning her clothes and things, which luckily, ended up wedging between the leftover coolers just fine.

To think that until just the other night I’d never even been east of the Mississippi River, who would have been able to guess that I would suddenly find myself pulling away from one of the countries most historically rich cities with two nearly complete strangers, my hands gripped tightly to the oversized steering wheel of a used Snap-on delivery van, in search of America’s pot roast?
