As soon as we hit dry land, we got some food
Being together for so long, naturally, we had moments where we wanted to rip each other's hair out, but in the end, I'm glad I got to spend this time with my parents.
In Montana, my mom and dad bought some food from a local BBQ, and the burgers were massive. I'm pretty sure there was an entire cow between those two pieces of bread. We found this rather humorous since on the way to the hotel, there were several fields full of cows... Whenever someone would pick up a burger, one of us would go "Mooooooooooo!" before the other could take a bite =D. I'm sorry cow. RIP.
We went to our first truck-stop! Of course, we kept an eye out for any overly-friendly men wearing cowboy hats and chewing tobacco. We've seen enough sci-fi movies to know that the acceptance of a single kind gesture from one of these men means sudden death. And of course, we all know TV doesn't lie...
Every time we crossed a state, my mom would stop at a gift shop and buy a shot glass for her collection. Jokingly, I told my mom I hoped we wouldn't get pulled over because the cops would see all the shot glasses and take us for alcoholics. Mom looks at me and goes: Those are for drinking?! I only wanted them because they're cute and little....THEY'RE FOR DRINKING?!?!
My mom has been collecting shot glasses from around the world for 5 years, but now that she knows they are for drinking, she's decided to collect bells.
