May 24 | Are we there yet...
I remember taking road trips with Melissa. Most of the time Val was driving and we were going somewhere as a family. The first few times I remember a little blond hair girl with glasses who was missing teeth and who was always sick in the car so she spent most of her time sleeping. When she would wake up she would always ask "are we there yet?" I don't remember exactly how it came about, I think Valette had something to do with it...but that question became "are we there yet, Papa Smurf?" and it stuck. I still use that question when I really want to be where I am going without the long trip. "Are we there yet, Melissa Smurf?"

I remember doing that mainly because it irritated dad.

And that Papa Smurf thing came from a great episode of the smurfs where they were traveling far away and everyone kept asking Papa Smurf if they were there yet. He kept saying, "Almost there, almost there." After about a hundred times of this routine he finally burst out, "NO WE'RE NOT THERE YET!" The Smurfs were great.
