Talking Dictionary590. Ma And Pa Drive To NYC


590. His mom called. "Dad and I are coming to see you. We're going to drive." Jordan said, "Drive? Are you crazy? You're both 86 years old. It's 1,500 miles from there to here. Maybe you'll be okay on the freeways, if Dad doesn't fall asleep while he's driving. But then, what're you going to do when you get into New York City? The last time you two were here, there were more horses on the streets than there were cars. Now, there's a thousand street signs pointing a thousand different ways saying a thousand different things. You'll both have heart attacks—Dad from going around in circles, and you from yelling at him to stop going around in circles. Why not just fly?" Mom said, "You know very well why not. When I die, I want to go to heaven from the ground, not from heaven above into the ground." 3.1
