“Want to go for a Sunday drive?”

Apparently this is an actual thing. I don’t recall anything like that happening growing up β€” our Sunday drive was home from church, stopping at the Dunkin’ Donuts for a box of sugary goodness before heading home to read the comics.

Driving is a mixed bag for me. I’m good with highways, interstates, main roads, side roads, all the usual types of roads. You know what I’m not good with? Driving curvy, winding, makes-me-feel-seconds-away-from-puking roads. Front seat, back seat, it makes no difference to me. Those curves wreak havoc on my constitution and that is No Fun.

But even with the straight roads I just don’t find driving relaxing. It can be pretty, sure, but there’s too much I’m focused on to really zone out. I much prefer sitting on the deck or cuddling with a dog for relaxation. Having an available bathroom is just the cherry on top. πŸ˜†
