Well. I patted my feet into the next room.
"Eric... uh.... wanna pack up the truck, and head to the desert?" All of a sudden, I had a serious, mad need to indulge my inner lizard and renew my Self upon those glorious, sun-warmed rocks.
"Uh... now? Today?"
And so it was that we tossed a few things into the truck, his mountain bike on top, and made sure there was a clean, family-owned motel available to us a few hundred miles away. And there we went.
That will do.
