Carrie stared out the window of the car, watching trees yield to open farmland dotted with black and brown herds of cattle. Her sister Joanie was glued to a video game, as usual, and her parents were arguing, again as usual.
“It’s the next exit,” her mother said.
“The one after is closer,” her father insisted.
“But then we have to backtrack–”
“That takes less time than going straight there from this exit.”
Her mother crossed her arms. “Fine, great, there goes the exit anyway.”
“How about you drive on the way home?”
“I hate going to Grandpa’s,” Carrie mumbled. “He always does stupid magic tricks.”
