The car sat idling on the shoulder of the roadway. Betsy was trying to use an old-fashioned map to find her route and it wasn’t going well. Mike leans over and says, “Just let me check my phone it will be faster.”
Betsy shook her head and said, “This is supposed to be a no electronics weekend. I hate to give up already and fall back on the Google Gods.”
“It really is no big deal Betsy. I will just check the map online and then we can get to our hotel before dark.”
“Just please give me five more minutes to try to locate. 287th street. Please?”
“Okay, five more minutes then I am turning my phone on.”
Betsy began to concentrate on the map again. Suddenly she pushed her finger down on the map and said. “Found it! We only have about a mile to go and we will be back on the highway. Then it is just a matter of about 20 minutes, and we will be there!”
Signaling she returned to the road. And took what would be the worst drive of her life.
