Should I Stay or Should I Go – The Clash
The “big” cousins like to take a break from the whole family on our trip and get away for an hour or so. We will get a car and drive into town. Usually my cousin J and T are in charge of the music that we cruise to. We roll down the windows and my cousin T will often yell random things out the window…. She has actually gotten a few couples to kiss.
Our first year we drove to McDonalds a lot to use their free wifi. One year we met a boy named John. He rode one of those bikes pulling a bench carriage. He offered to take us for a ride for free & we were really impressed with his leg muscles! Ten minutes later we were walking around town and some rougher looking boys were trying to hit on my younger cousin. John pulled up in his bike and told us to get in. He then biked us to “safety”. He is a legend now in my family.
It’s probably part of our trips I look forward to the most. We always have a blast, even if we don’t do anything much or special.
