Ain't it something

The lady at the coffee counter dried her hands on her apron and shot us a suspicious sideways glance. “What are you guys looking for today?” she asked.
“Nothing,” I said. And that was the truth. “We’re going to drive around and see if we can find nothing.” A better way to put it might have been, “We’re just trying to get away for a day,” or even “We don’t know where we’re going, but we’ll know when we get there.”
She laughed. Maybe because my answer hadn’t done anything to dissuade her suspicion, maybe because she didn’t know what else to do. My photographer buddy, Tyler Roemer, laughed too, but for a different reason. It sounded a little ridiculous. But that didn’t mean it wasn’t true.
