Lorelai is on her way, hopefully, to Milan. Her fight got cancelled yesterday. Hank is going to have to be medicated by the time she gets back home in just less than a month. How quickly do nerve pills kick in? When Legare left four years ago for THREE months, we put him in a rental car to drive from Charleston to Atlanta and didn't give it a second thought. There ARE; however, a couple of reasons that we should probably be a bit more concerned about our little tidbit Lorelai.
Primarily, is the fact that she got lost last weekend driving from Clemson to Chapel Hill. We called her Friday morning about 11:00 and she was still asleep. After giving strict orders for her to get up and be on the road by 12:30, we drove merrily on up I-95.
About 2:00, she called to tell us how distressed she was to be in traffic in Atlanta.
Now tell me...how many people typically drive through Georgia to get from Clemson, SC to Chapel Hilll, NC? Approximately four and a half hours after she left Clemson, she was back where she started from and still had to drive on to Chapel Hill. Legare yelled at her over the phone and made her cry (I was not there yet or I would have spanked him), so she stopped along the way at a mall to make herself feel better. (She is definitely her mother's daughter.)
She finally made it to us just before 9 PM and by that time we were ALL exhausted from wondering where she might end up or that she was going to get sleepy. Thank goodness for traffic in Atlanta, she could have made it all the way to ALABAMA!!
This photo was taken just after she walked in the door at Legare's apartment where there was a Beach Music and BBQ graduation party going on. Please ignore the bottle in her hand. Legare felt sorry for her (and probably guilty) and handed to her as she walked in. Hank's expression is priceless, don't you think?
The guy standing beside her gave her a hug and said quietly, "I know exactly how you feel... I ended up in Tennessee once when I should have been in West Virginia."
So...you can see why Hank may require some tranqualizing until she returns from her grand tour!
