7 hours in the car yesterday could have been daunting but I totally enjoyed it. It gave me a break from the office routine, time and space to think, and a chance to go somewhere I’d never been before. I was happy with my coffee, the chatty GPS and my jam-packed mp3 player. When I tired of those, I had fun flipping through Detroit radio stations and reading signs for places like “Ypsilanti” and “Tecumseh.”
But the best part of my whole day was my encounter with a young fellow who waited on me in an Ann Arbor Restaurant; I overheard him say he was a single father of three and just finishing up his shift so he could take his youngest to a Dr appt. The food was mediocre, the service superb, and the tip I left him … massive.
Why? Because I could.
