So, we decided not to travel about 60 miles to a family thing tonight. No biggie, right? Well, other family members are doing it and they have three times as far to go.
I think the family thinks we're a bunch of jerks (or they just blame me as I'm the inlaw).
But, here's the deal. Charming here sees all the accidents every day. He knows who was killed where, how, when and what the weather was like. He knows that often you don't need to worry about yourself, but about the other idiot on the road driving too fast, to crazy, too drunk. And he doesn't want to travel a distance in crappy weather.
More knowledge changes what we do. Sometimes I miss the old days when we would drive in a blizzard just because we wanted pizza THAT BAD.
But I like living safer better. I think. And if we aren't the life of the party anymore... oh well.
