It was pretty crowded, even for Monday. We usually just drive
through and get dilly and buster bars, but this time we went inside
and got some sundaes. After I ordered they gave me the total and I
reached for my wallet; “Oh shoot! Honey, I left my wallet at home.
Can I borrow your credit card?” I’m thinking, oh, wonderful, she’s
going to give me a hard time about bait and switch on our ‘date’.
But, I had no such luck. She said, “Um, sorry. I left my purse at
home.” I now know that it takes exactly 4 minutes to drive home, 10
seconds to pick up my wallet, and another 4 minutes to drive back
to DQ.” At least it didn’t take them long to make our order after I

[My thoughts exactly Lester! However, there was a time in my
younger days I would have gone over... Because my tent was the one
closest to their camp site, I moved my mini van between them and my
tent. Better to fix a hole in my car, then my head.]
