I guess we were on the road a couple hours before the first time I said to Jason, “You are really irritating me with the way you exist and take up space.”
He took offense, but, seriously, he takes up a lot of space.
He’s a decent copilot, though–not super-great with directions, but he did some excellent iPod DJ-ing, and, really, if the music’s good enough, it’s okay to spend some extra time on the road.
Now we’re at an inn we found in the middle of I’m-Not-Totally-Sure-Where-We-Are, Indiana. It’s clean but kind of run down, and maybe (definitely) Jason and I have watched too many horror movies, but we’ve both been suspicious ever since we got here, trying to figure out why the place is so cheap. Jason’s out “exploring” now. If he doesn’t come back, I’m making a run for the car. In the meantime, though, I might as well read a book.
