From Wendy Parker, Overdrive:
It’s a good thing I wasn’t counting on a career in radio, because I sound like a drunk hillbilly through a mic. Apparently, I also sound like a drunk hillbilly when I’m searching for food and being eavesdropped on by the clerk at Speedway, whether or not I’m speaking through a mic.
Speedway is certainly not the best place to be searching for sustenance beyond fuel, lottery tickets or coffee after midnight, but we’ve all been there. Not Speedway, specifically, but tired, hungry, don’t-care-what-it-is-as-long-as-it-doesn’t-eat-me-first, staring down the roller rack in trepidation and hoping for the best.
If you enjoy Wendy’s articles and like to laugh, I highly recommend her book 100,000 Miles of Crazy: Adventures from the road with George and Wendy. I laughed from page one through every page until the end. She has a remarkable sense of humor!
