.....We stopped violating the Coke machine so we could hear better. We had to know who was breaking the “no talking in the public bathroom” rule.

A little more time passed and, though she was just as curious as we were, Mom ordered us back to the car to wait. A few moments later our father figure joined us in silence and we returned to the highway.
The silence was too much and it was Mom who prodded him to tell the story. “So, how did it go in there?”.
“Fine”, he said studying the road in front of him more than he had the entire trip.
