Taking Couples Cooking Arguments on the Road
Not content to limit them to Texas, we will take them elsewhere. To Florida in 2 weeks.
Taking COVID precautions, our motels are small, with entry doors directly from the parking lot into the rooms. Every site we want to see can be done in a vehicle, and we can choose isolated places to get out of the vehicle, maybe swim, maybe check out an alligator. I know people who catch them for the park rangers nearby. Wrestling gators is an art form.
Here is the cooking argument in waiting: We purchased a Mr. Bar-B-Q charcoal grill so we can drop the tailgate on the truck, and fire it up, thereby avoiding fast food and crowded restaurants. ($19.98 at Lowe's) We will have to go into a grocery store, but they are roomier than a restaurant.
Cooking ensues."A, you burn shit!" "B, you expect me to eat bloody meat!" " B, I judge by sight!" "A, you need cataract surgery, goober!"
This a step up from just motels and buying crap food, but a step down from purer glamping. A couldn't find glamping opportunity where we wanted to go in Florida. B is in accord with the portable charcoal grill. A is glad. B can do all the grilling while A watches. And drinks beer.
I can attest to the lifting of spirits of just leaving your home for a day or so. In this instance, we will get at least a week. We all need the experience of being free, within safe, COVID protocols.
Just thinking of wrestling an alligator gets my blood racing
And watching B grill does, too.
