And now my 100 word story:
I awoke to the dreaded words: “Road Trip!” I put the pillow over my head. “Come on sleepy heads” my dad’s voice echoed. I heard my sister giggle and knew the tickle monster was near. I sat up in bed, wearing the grumpy look I had mastered in my twelve short years. “Why can’t we go to the beach or an amusement park?” I whined.
“Those places are too expensive and not as much fun as a road trip, where we never know what wondrous sights await us. “It’s all about the journey”, young lady.
The man was a cliché.
