(I'm Gonna Be) 16,000 Miles
"Just think how far we've traveled in this relationship," frances said last night as we were on our phones, driving our separate ways from our evening spent together (and more on that soon)...
"How far do you think it's been?"
So, we did the math. Sometimes, we've seen each other three or four times a week. Those have been good times. Sometimes, it's been a month or more. Those, obviously, have not. But on average, we figure we've seen each other about once every other week. And if we meet halfway, it means about 100 miles round trip for each of us.
So, 100 miles, every other week, for about 3 years... means we've each driven about 8,000 miles. Or, roughly, about enough to have each driven once around the country like you see above.
But i'd do it all again in a heartbeat... :-)
