Yesterday Beth wanted to go to the girls softball game at the park across from the school. To the school and back, round trip, it's 14.1 miles, or so Yahoo Maps says.

I put gas in the van yesterday morning, so I reset the trip odometer to 0. At most when I got home there would have been 5 miles on it. So, if 5 plus 14.1 equals 19.1, why does my trip odometer have almost 65 miles on it?

Something tells me she went somewhere besides the softball game. She just recently got ungrounded for going somewhere she wasn't supposed to go and telling us she was somewhere else. I guess the girl just doesn't learn - or we're not taking the right things away or for long enough.
