It was adventure day. On adventure day, I take my kids to some place we had never been before. Our destination was in Dayton, Ohio. I consulted MapQuest for directions and hit the open road.
Everything seemed to be going just fine, until the directions took us to a residential street that ended in a cul-de-sac. Destination was supposed to be at the end of the cul-de-sac.
"Um, something isn't right here," I said.
"No kidding," my precocious daughter replied. "Did you use MapQuest again?"
I decided to ask for directions.
The first individual I met was a half-naked man on a riding mower. "Excuse me sir, can you tell me how to get to my destination. I seem to be lost."
After about a ten-minute explanation, we were on the road again.
We drove on, following the man's directions. I was beginning to think that the half-naked man on the riding mower was sending me on a wild goose chase. So I stopped in a gas station.
"I have no idea where that is," said the attendent when I inquired. Fortunately, a nice elderly gentleman overheard my inquiry.
"Take this road," he said pointing to the next street, "and it'll be on your right side."
Wonderful! After a few twists and turns and a detour down another street, we reached our destination.
On the way home we saw a car with a bumper sticker: "If you're following me, you're lost too!"
I need one of those!
