Me: “Nickel for your thoughts.”
PN: “A nickel?”
Me: “Yeah, it used to be a penny, but inflation changed it to a nickel.”
PN: “Oh, OK, well I’m thinking about dinosaurs of course!”
Me: “I should have figured.”
PN: “You owe me a nickel.”
Me: “No problem, I think I actually have a nickel in my purse.”
PN: “Next time you want to know my thoughts, it will cost you a dime. And the time after that, a quarter.”
PN: “Inflation, you know.”
Our traveling plans were delayed a day, so as of 7-ish (or 8-ish…definitely by 9-ish) a.m. this morning we’ll be on the road heading towards Iowa. Once we get to our halfway point in Ohio to stop for the night, I might be able to put a post together for tomorrow highlighting some of the first day road trip fun. Traveling with 2 dogs and a Nagger always results in some hilarity. Or at least makes it not so boring.
Meanwhile I’ll probably be sending off Tweets (@RandomCoolChick) while we’re on the way – when I’m not the driver, of course. I never Tweet and drive. But it does help distract me from being a passenger when the hubby tends to be a crazy-ish driver. Ish. Since I have a Dumb Phone (as opposed to a Smart Phone) I’ll have to wait until I can get online to reply to any snarky responses to my snarky tweets. One of these days I’ll join the Smart Phone Revolution so I can be relevant in this century. Hopefully before next century.
