Day 13
Breaking Down
A tire blows out as you’re in the car with someone on the verge of his/her own breakdown.
Stuck in a small town, you’re about to do something you haven’t done in years.

I remember that there is a pond with a tree and a tire swing within walking distance. So I’m going to grab Mallory and the cooler from the backseat and head to the pond. We’re in need of play time on the double.
