NEW CASTLE —
During the delay, we got listen to various Christmas songs on the radio and enjoy the antics of my daughter acting out such classics as, “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.” It was actually a fun time and the 135 minutes that we sat there flew by. The only problem was that the refreshing beverages that I brought along for our journey and that my daughter had consumed a hour or so earlier, rapidly became a bathroom emergency.
Let me tell you, sitting on the Turnpike in a winter snow storm with hundred of strangers is not the place you want have a bathroom emergency. We eventually began to move again and made it to our destination without any accidents, but next time I will be enforcing a strong one-drink maximum rule for any passengers in my car.
