Things that happened yesterday:
I drove nineteen hours.
Saw several towns called Mount Vernon (where there was no mount to be seen) and a lot of corn (so much corn!)
Had a bug stow away with me in the car all the way to St. Loius
(I named him Studly Dudley). I am a little bit concerned that I named a bug just during that short amount of time. I’m pretty sure that makes me the person who would find mice and cockroaches in prison and immediately name them and declare that they are my friends.
Ten more hours to go til Colorado Springs.
