1. We pack enough electronics to entertain 10 people. We also pack enough food to survive in our car for a week.
2. My husband bought cubed ham for the kids to eat in case we couldn't find food for them. The brand? Olde Kentucky Ham. Why? because he doesn't read my blog...or maybe he does and he is trying to torture me.
3. Our Tom Tom hates us. Why else would it takes us on a scenic tour of downtown Gary, Indiana and straight into downtown Chicago just to make us go back out to our destination in a NW suburb?
4. There is a McDonalds in the middle of the highway, the drivethru lane is right next to the lane for the turnpike. We almost got in the wrong lane.
5. We got to about the Loop in Chi-town when Monkey decided he wanted to go home. NOW.
6. The mall across the street where I had to go to buy the "discounted" tickets for the Lego Discovery Zone has 3 levels.
7. No one asked to see our tickets upon entering the Discovery Zone. I could have saved over $40 bucks and a trip into the 3 story mall on the first nice Saturday afternoon of the year.
8. Monkey threw a fit for no less than 1/2 hour before he would enter the Zone. Why does no one call the police when they see a woman pinning a child into a corner in a parking garage while he begs her to let him go?
9. We missed one of the toll booths on the turnpike. I wonder if they just mail us a ticket and how much it costs to skip paying the $.80 toll.
10. G informed me that he "didn't want to hear it anymore" when I complained that he was going to fast.
11. 20 minutes later he informed me that "I was right" just before the state trooper flipped on his lights and pulled us over.
12. Cops must be able to smell each other, G never gets a ticket.
