In honor of all those crazy folks doing National Novel Writing Month, I present The NaNoWriMo Family Takes a Road Trip
Dad: Check out the odometer. Another 5,000 words down-
Mom: LOOK OUT!
Mom: You just hit a typo.
Mom: Should we go back to help it out?
Dad: There's no time.
Mom: But what if we don't see it on the way back-
Dad: THERE'S NO TIME!
Mom: Would you PLEASE pay attention. You hit another one.
Mom: And now you've hit a grammatical mistake! Just pull over to let me drive.
Dad: No, I've got this.
Mom: At least pull over so we can use the restroom.
Dad: There's no time! Here. Use this soda bottle.
Mom: Well, would you at least hand me the map so I can plot our course?
Dad: Plotting? We'll never get there if we do that.
Kid: Are we there yet?
Dad: No! We have 35,000 more words to go, and if you keep asking, I will turn us around at the next paragraph.
Mom: Watch out ahead. Cops like to sit at this word sprint.
Kid: Susie said her mom only has 20,000 more words left.
Dad: Well, hurrah for Susie's mom. Some of us actually type words that are longer than two syllables long.
Kid: Susie said her mom's book is better than yours.
Dad: Well, you can tell Susie that now she's dying in chapter 16.
