Why Can't Hither Be Closer To Yon?
I spend about four and a half hours in the car each week driving my kids from hither to yon. If you aren't familiar with hither or yon then you either (a) don't have children, or (b) have a very good public transit system. Hith and Yo, as I like to call them (we're friendly, but by no means friends) are easily recognizable, Hith never has a gas station, and Yo is in the No Starbucks Zone. It is impossible to be on-time to anyplace in Hither There's a creepy time warpy thing that goes on when you enter there that throws you back twenty minutes and whips your gas gauge to E. But, once you throw your kids out of the car, you can coast down the hill and wait for AAA at the Starbucks. Yon, on the other hand has plenty of gas stations, and time to kill. I usually spend my time there sitting in my car reading and waiting on someone to finish some activity or another....I do enjoy some quiet time and reading is one of my favorite activities, but it sure would be nice to have a coffee. I've suggested coffee delivery as a service but AAA hasn't gotten back to me yet.
