Ah, yesterday it was time once again for the fun, fun roadtrip I like to call “ten hours plus of misery sitting in a car by myself so I can go home and see my mom for her birthday before I start work.” Yep, that about sums it up. At least this is a good week to visit, since my dad and brother both have birthdays this week too.
On my way through Oklahoma at 75 mph, I saw my two favorite road signs. The first sign proudly proclaims: “Hitchhikers may be escaping inmates.” Now, I would think that is fairly important information, however Oklahoma obviously does not agree, since the sign is small and easy to miss. The other, much larger, sign states: “Do not drive into smoke.” I’ve driven through that particular region of Oklahoma many, many times and I still have no clue what “smoke” they are talking about. Of course I haven’t seen any hitchhikers in orange jumpsuits either.
