We Need Dora

Sophia and i are known for getting into circumstances were we get lost quite often, and today was the first time in the new city.  First we were just looking for Super Target, aka our new favorite store.  Since we had just been there days before we figured we didn’t need Dora (the explorer), known to some as a GPS.  We got off Dodge (the main road in Omaha that everything is on) onto 132nd street.  Everything looked familiar, but no Super Target in sight.  So we pulled into a BBQ place and tried to get directions from a man who spoke poor english, but realy we just got more lost.  We had to stop and ask for directions three times before eventually finding it.  And going home was no easier.  We drove down the street as the numbers descended then took random turns until we saw tall buildings and assumed we were going in the right directions.  This time that assumption was right, but it took 20 minutes as opposed to taking the highway that parallelled the street and getting there in 10.  Oh well, better luck next time right?

So we go to dinner, and we find it no problem.  After a fine meal we walked around, went to our favorite candy shop, and then walked back to our car.  It was at this time, when we couldn’t remember where we parked it.  I continued to laugh hysterically as I walked through the cross walk as tears started to leave my eyes.  We did soon find our car by using landmarks to trace our steps, but maybe next time I should bring breadcrumbs.
