Saturday again, really? Well, boring ought to be easy today. I have nothing to say.
But here's mine--
A few weeks ago we drove from Missouri one day to Alabama and turned around the next day and came back. It is a grueling trek in some ways, but in others I enjoy doing that more than staying longer. I wrote about a little problem I had last year on the same trip here.
I thought I would give a little update on the T in Tennessee, Kentucky and Alabama. I am not a fussy traveler. I don't need Starbucks to keep me going or a Big Gulp. My only and unswerving requirement is iced tea in the afternoon. I almost am incapable of driving in the afternoon without ice tea. I like it plain, just tea, not sweet tea, not flavored tea. Just tea.
Last year I had problems finding iced tea in Tennessee on the way home. It caused great anxiety as I searched fruitlessly for a tea source. I blame the economy and failing fast food chains. This year I was prepared. On the way down to Alabama I got my tea at McAllisters in Paducah, Kentucky. They had good food and very nice rest rooms. You know that the rest rooms are nice when your husband says, go check out the light fixtures in the bathroom, I want something like that for my bathroom. And they were nice. That tea satisfied my craving all the way to Alabama and spawned a couple of rest room visits in Tennessee and Alabama on the way. None of those rest rooms were anywhere as nice as McAllisters.
Going home the next day we left at noon so I got my tea in Alabama. MacDonalds tea this time. I almost panicked because the Subway where I ate had no tea. No Tea! I insisted on an immediate stop for tea.
Of course that tea led to some more rest room uses in Tennessee and Kentucky. So this time I skipped the tea in Tennessee and instead looked for the place to you know "p," if you will.
If that isn't a boring post, illustrated like an alert blogger, then I don't know boring.
