The Home Team is taking a little vacation this weekend.
Me: "Is there any way we can take your laptop on our trip?"
Pete: "Probably, why?"
Me: "...in case I want to, uh, write."
Pete: "Oh, so now you're one of them."
(Truthfully, with three backpacks, two carseats, three suitcases, a DVD player, and something to carry food, I think the laptop may not make the cut. Wonder if I really need my suitcase...)
