“Get in the picture, get in the picture.”

The very last thing Josh wanted to do was get in the goddamned picture. He knew he shouldn’t swear but heck it wasn’t out loud or anything and that was important.

This trip had been part of their plans as a family for two months now. Same as the year before. Get everyone in the car and drive across the country to Disneyland. That was the prize. And last year had been great. Everyone laughing and joking, singing songs and stopping to take photos along the way. This year not the same. Not the same at all.

Silence mostly. Sometimes a CD of songs from the same band made for okay miles. But a lot of the time it was the radio slightly out of tune and crackling as they drove through different states.
