The humming of the tires over the pavement lulled her into a sound sleep with her head slumped against the window. After who knows how long, she opened her eyes in time to see a small sign off in the distance. She knew if there was one, there would be five more.
Although her dad was the only one who shaved, the entire family enjoyed reading these witty, rhyming road-side signs that had become a milestone in breaking boredom for weary travelers.
