Today I had to drive my mother somewhere, so I took off work. She told me that it would probably involve waiting around somewhere for a couple of hours and she apologized for this, like it was bad news!
I have looked forward to this day ever since. As soon as I dropped Mom off, I got a bagel and then I found a shady tree to park under in an empty parking lot, and I reclined my seat and opened the windows, and I read in silent bliss for two hours.
It was the best.
