Here are three things I know about road trips:
1. You should always stop to take a picture of the World’s Largest Anything. Even if it’s ridiculous. Especially if it’s ridiculous.
2. Regardless of your personal political views, you should never count on a Republican to make decent cappuccino. (Libertarians and Green Party supporters, however, can be trusted implicitly. The reason for this will be obvious if you think about it for a minute.)
3. If the motel has a friendly cat in the lobby, it’s probably safe to check in without inspecting the room.
