How’s this for an experience?
Road trip to Osoyoos and Penticton B.C. Wine country. We do this annually.
I’m driving my brother’s car because 1) it has cruise control and mine doesn’t, 2) I’ve got far more experience driving long distances. (Countless, long road trips in Northwestern B.C. during my CBC Radio years), and 3) I’m the big sister and the boss of everything.
Here’s how it went for practically the entire 4.5 hour drive.
“Slow, slow. slow.”
“Why do you speed up going around the corners and drive like a slug when the road is flat and straight?”
“Are you drunk?” (It’s 9:30 am)
“Are you trying to roll the car?”
I think this is what they call ‘making memories’. Next year, I’ll be sealing his mouth shut with duct tape before we set off. I’ll enjoy making that memory.
A candidate for barbarian traveller of the year methinks!
