Hah - 12 hours - you're still in Texas!12 hour monotonous drive through Texas!
Ancient joke along those lines (?How old? Well it was told to me by my younger friend who came over on the Mayflower )
I'll tell you just a little story then about these 2 farmers who were making comparisons, talking about their respective farms.
The Texan asked the Missourian how big his farm was and the Missourian said, " I got a nice little parcel - runs about 80 acres."
On hearing this the Texan kind of swelled-up a little bit and said "Why listen, I can't even go out and get in my old pickup and drive across my farm in a day."
The Missourian nodded and said, "Yep, I had a pickup like that once... "
