Road trips are the best.
One: You don’t ever feel stagnant. You are moving forward, constantly. Red lights are temporary.
Two: You never have to stop eating. There is nothing else to do. Eat your Twinkies, chocolates, and chips. And sing along Ed Sheeran’s and Justin Bieber’s “I don’t care”.
Three: You are a kid again. Playing peek-a-boo with the sun, racing the wind, and following the moon.
Four: You can discuss the most disturbing thoughts here, and your partner would listen. Nobody is going anywhere.
Five: You can shift from “doing” to simply “being”.
