We've been on our trip for about 8 months now, and we've collected quite a few trademark quotes, and some funny ones. I would like to share some of them with you. We'll start with the classic:
1- "RV there yet?" Our travel time from campground to campground is about 4-7 hours, and it can get difficult to just sit. Not that I know from personal experience...
2- "Have you seen my (fill in the blank)?" You'd think that in 300 sq. feet, wed find lost things easier, but it just seems harder! We've lost (and found) cameras, plugs, sacks, and much more.
3- This quote is more funny, and also a little backstory. We were in a museum, and came across an exhibit that had a dead frog, a cigarette, and some other old things in it to show how things decay over time. Nate, who had no idea what it was about, merely noticed the frog and the cigarette, and piped up, "Mommy, maybe that frog died because he smoked." Let that be a lesson to all you frogs out there who smoke. Your little lungs can't take it!
4- "Wow! This restaurant really does have a hole in the wall!" You may not realize how many familiar restaurants you visit until doing so is very difficult. We've tried many new restaurants during the trip, and we've gotten a lot of good ones, with a handful of bad ones. There was one in particular that we tried while at the last campground. It was one of maybe 4 restaurants within 20 miles, and it was a Mexican restaurant. Have you ever been to one of those places that has spicy salsa, and they don't bring your water for at least 10 minutes? This was one of those places. My tongue suffered that day. The food was alright, but the taco meat was made with Old El Paso seasoning, which we could have easily made at home. Another thing we've noticed while in the Midwest and West is that Mexican restaurants charge you extra after your first basket of chips. I really miss Mexican restaurants back home.
5- "Ooh, look! Someone's pulling in next to us!" This quote, talking about RVs in campgrounds, is usually followed by something like "What do you think that thing on the back of their RV is?" or "It looks like they full-time." or "I hope there is someone my age". It's inevitable.
You now know a bit about what our everyday conversations are like. I challenge you to think about what you or your family's "trademark" quotes are.
