L’s First Road Trip (Part One)

Last week I mentioned that my son took his first road trip recently.  All things considered it went pretty well, especially considering how it could have gone.

The reason behind our road trip, you see, was to go on a field trip with his school, and we were supposed to be at the location at 9 A.M.  I’m sure you can do the math yourself, but to fully elucidate the potential horror, to be there on time we would have had to be on the road at 6 A.M. minimum, and after a long morning and afternoon, we’d be facing an equivalent drive home in close quarters with an exhausted six-year old.

I’ll spare you my full reaction to this idea, but the last word of my thought was “that” followed by an exclamation point.
