My Big Kids will be returning tonight from a road trip to visit cousins in Tennessee. The two of them, along with Twenty's Girlfriend, left early Sunday morning. Someone who wasn't driving at the time kept me posted via text message as they crossed the border into various states along the way.
I appreciated the updates, and it looks like they're planning to do the same on the way home. I just got a phone call from Twenty, who was getting back into the car (and into the passenger seat) after a break for lunch.
I think I liked the text messages better.
Much as I enjoy conversations with my son, especially when they're recounting the fun he's had on this road trip, I don't much care for the way they're punctuated. He's talking to me AND to his girlfriend (the driver) at the same time.
"So, yeah, we left here at 8 this morning, that's 7:00 your time, Eastern, and...go THAT way, 81 North, THAT way...and we'll be home probably around...you have to go LEFT to get on 81 North...I better go."
Some things, I'd rather just not know. It's better just to get a text like "just crossed into Virginia" like I received on his way out to Tennessee.
