road trippin’

From the Adventures of Teqwita and the Snow Princess


One of my favorite roommates (we have the BEST stories from our freshman year, honestly) and I drove out to Kansas back in 2000 for our roommate, Ruth’s wedding. We took my sweet little blue Volvo and took turns driving from Salt Lake, through Denver and on to Kansas City for the celebration. For some reason, along the way, we decided to write down little quotes of remarks in our conversation. Taken out of context, they seemed so funny to us. What do you think? Ah, to be young again…

  • It’s a confused body of water.
  • I’m tight with the seat belt man.

  • We’re going to hit a bird; hold on!
  • …Sparky was a good cat…
  • Fruita is Teqwita’s twin sister.
  • It’s a ferret. I see three trains. Maybe a lizard?

  • On our left we have a pirate…
