Last year I had my navigational skills questioned by my three year old. Since that time I have not used my GPS during our trips from VA to NC because, you know, I got this.
On our most recent trip home, I called my Dad to let him know we were on our way and we had the following conversation:
Dad "What time does the GPS say you'll be here?"
Me "I don't know, I'm not using it. I know my way home."
Two and a half hours later I had the following conversation with my Grandmother-in-law:
Me: "We're making great time! Madelyn's sleeping and we're near *some town that starts with W."
Nanny: "Thats great! Be safe."
Forty five minutes later I call Nanny back...
Me: "Um...we're in West Virginia."
Me: "Yeah. I didn't need the GPS."
I call Chris
Me: "Um...we're in West Virginia"
Chris: "Where's the GPS?"
Me: "I didn't need it..."
*Wytheville is the "W" town that we drive through each trip, there was a different "W" town at about the same point on 81N and my brain just made them be the same.
some thoughts about abuse.
