Driving Adventure and Pictures

When we first moved to Oklahoma, my mom would have what she called "driving adventures". It was basically her driving with a very generalized idea of where she was in an attempt to learn her way around town. Now that I'm older, I have some of my own. Monday was no exception.

Jillian and I met up with some friends at the zoo! Once we left, it was exactly 5 p.m. Since I'm not a big fan of rush hour traffic, I decided to go a different way. I took a main road assuming it would go as far north as I needed it to.

I should preface this with my gas light came on as I parked at the zoo. I tried looking up nearby gas stations, but Siri failed to find any close by. Great.

I got to an area of town that I not only recognized, but I saw a Shell station! Thank ya Jesus! I pulled in, got gas, and started the car. I realized that there was no way I was going to be able to turn left out of there, let alone turn right to continue the way I was going. Remembering a local private university was close, I decided to just turn around there. I turned into campus, but there is one person in front of me and two behind me. I decided I would play it cool and act like I was going somewhere specific before I turned around. That makes it ok, right? {It's not like having a child in a rear-facing car seat is a dead giveaway that I didn't belong.}

Anyways, so I started driving through campus. The person in front of the line turned into a parking lot, and the car in the back of the line followed suit. There was still a crazed woman in a mini-van on my bumper behind me. No problem, I just kept going. So I started to follow the street. It curved to the right. Then it passed the baseball field before another sharp curve to the right. Now I'm near dorm rooms and this person was not turning anywhere. Instead of continuing this impromptu campus tour, I decided to concede and turned into a parking lot. I had to wait on someone to pull out of their parking spot before I could turn around and make my way back to the street. So I curved to the left, passed the baseball field again, curved to the left a final time, then decided to just cut through a church parking lot and got back to the street I needed in the first place.

And that's what driving around with me can be like. Oh well, at least it's kinda funny ;)
