“I heard New Mexico is beautiful.”

“That’s a little far south, wouldn’t you say?”

“I guess you’re right.” She glances back down at the list, “Canada? That’s close.”

“We’d have to get passports.”

“The east coast could be fun. Philadelphia? Boston? New--”

“I’m not a fan of the east coast.”

“You’ve been there?”

“No.”

“What’s there to do in North Dakota?”

“Well, we could--”

“Hold on...hello?”

I look at the map. Minnesota’s nice.

“Yeah, hold on, I’ll ask him.”

“Tell them no,” I say.

She raises her eyebrows, “You sure?”

“Yeah.”

We have never been there.
