I woke up this morning to snow. I came 7 hours south and am still getting the winter weather. Melissa was leaving early to make her drive south so I said good-bye after breakfast.
I went to church and lunch with Dad, Laura, and Sonya and then started my drive north. I was worried that southern Illinois might have bad roads (especially after my last median encounter), but the roads were fine. Halfway home I stopped for a bottle of water and a snack. I ate my chcolate cupcake and then went to open the bottle of water. It wouldn’t open. I tried till my hand was raw. Then I beat it against the steering wheel and tried some more. I used my shirt for added grip. At this point I was very thirsty but refused to stop a second time. I got out the leatherman I keep in my car and proceeded to use the knife to saw the cap in half. It took me a good 30 minutes or so with all of my attempts, but I finally got to drink my bottle of water. Geez.
