spoiler alert: we're the ghosts
i'm learning just how polar opposite me and caroline are in our personalities. i tend to sugarcoat things and people-please, while caroline tends to speak her mind all the time.
case in point:
my friend karol was driving us to poland awhile back and he kept swerving haphazardly in an out of lanes on the highway (no, mom, you shouldn’t freak out right now). we were driving in the right lane of a 3-lane highway and as he signaled to enter the middle lane he said to us, “i’m always so curious about would happen if 2 cars switched to the middle lane at the same time – one from the right and one from the left. yeah…i’ve always wondered about that”.
as i was laughing awkwardly/nervously and making little remarks like, “oh, yes, that’s an interesting and normal thought to have….” caroline, leaning forward from the backseat, interjected with, “we die. that’s what happens.” then, leaning back in her seat again, she rolled her eyes, sighed loudly, and shook her head – clearly exasperated.
have i ever mentioned how much i love caroline?
pretty soon, i’ll share some photos of our time in poland and explain how we got from poland to spain in what i can only describe as the fourth-worse travel experience of all time.
