To Grandmother’s House We Go
“Slow down!” yelled Margaret with her eyes closed.
“Calm down, Maggie. I am going the speed limit.” Joe stayed calm as he rounded each curve.
The kids were asleep in the back seat and were used to their mother’s tendency to overreact. Margaret knew she had to endure it in order to surprise her mother for her birthday.
