Alternate Forms of GPS

September 13, 2018

I am…shall we say, ‘directionally challenged’ and thus I rely on GPS to make it from the garage out to the street. I have found that GPS systems do not provide ample warnings—or at least not soon enough for me, especially when the streets are close together or I’m awake and processing oxygen. I need a little more guidance, so Erik has helpfully filled that gap. He sometimes overdoes it and warns me that I will need to turn in 12ft, 11ft, 10ft, etc. I don’t think he has gotten down to inches least not out loud.

Our son (Real-Sig™) enjoys ice cream from a chain called Brusters that are in both Florida and New York (and a lot of other places according to their website). The other day, he imagined a GPS specifically for Brusters. It will inform you of how far you are from the nearest Brusters and how long it will take to get there. If you turn in the opposite direction of the Brusters, it instructs you to “turn around when it is safe to do so and head towards the Brusters.” It won’t provide directions to anywhere else but will often suggest taking your child out for ice cream, sometimes more than once per day.

I’ll never get lost or want for ice cream again!


About Hank and Jane IRL

I asked Supergirl if she would write a few blog posts about our real lives. We’re calling it Hank and Jane IRL, and if you don’t get the Hank and Jane reference, you need to read the Blood of the Isir series. 🙂
