Road trips are fun, especially when I don't have to take the kids. Just me, my iPod (filled with hip hop, R&B, rap and the show tunes nobody else wants to hear) and my favorite car snacks. Junk food for the road! I love a cold diet soda and a bag of spicy chips. Like Pavlov's dog, my mouth starts to water for that combination as soon as I pull into the first gas station. But when I was younger, we had fire balls.
