And I’m back.
I have returned from my annual eastern vacation. Good times, good times. I visited family and friends. We laughed, drank, and played. I’m proud to say that I am a dominating force in Trivial Pursuit except for “The 90′s” version, apparently I missed the 90′s. Now if I had to (and I don’t but I’m gonna) talk a bit about each of the states I stayed I’d say this
Ohio: oh Ohio, if I were to ask 10 people what the 14th state was maybe 1 or 2 would guess correctly and name you. Is it because you’re so forgettable? Maybe. Not a lot to say about Ohio. I was either driving through a city or farmland. Rather forgettable. Not the company, the company was fantastic and I enjoyed myself, but the drive…eh.
New York: normally Wisconsin gets the most road construction vote, but not this year. Nope. New york wins the most road construction vote. And rerouting a major highway onto a 2 way rural route through a small town was not the smartest of decisions. I actually feel sorry for that poor small town, they now have 6 times the traffic. But that aside a very pretty drive. However the insects are insane there. I don’t know what bit me but I still have the raised bruise like swelling and intense itching a week latter.
Pennsylvania: you have more curves than a Nissan commercial (or Scarlett Johansson, whichever simile you prefer). Seriously, I spent more time driving corners than driving straight. But again, beautiful driving through the Appalachians.
Now every time I crossed state lines I would quiz Korbin. It didn’t go well.
Me: What’s the capital of Ohio?
Korbin: Um…Ohio City?
Me: No, wait what? Did you just say Ohio City?
Me: What’s the capital of New York?
Korbin: New York City
Me: No, but at least it’s a city. What’s the state nickname?
Korbin: It has a nickname? Um…Welcome to New York.
Me: *slams head against steering wheel*
Me:What’s the capital of Pennsylvania, and so help me if you say Pennsylvania City I’m tying you to the roof.
Me: *cries a little for the future of America*
Normally I’d post some pictures but I forgot the bag I had packed with my laptop, camera, recharging cords, and my hypertension medication. Good thing I really don’t need the meds, but the camera would’ve been nice.
Now I’m off to make more memories.
