I saw the sign ‘Honey for Sale’ and followed it.

Mom and I were travelling back from visiting family.

  • We were looking for a hotel to spend the night when we saw the sign, ‘Honey for Sale’, and followed it.

We drove nearly forty miles out of the way and took so many turns, I was sure we were lost. Mom was hoping the honey was cheaper here than where we lived, and she wanted to take some home to dad. When we finally got to the honey stand, the man was closing up and said he was out of honey. I rolled my eyes and mom said she saw the honey in the wagon and wanted to buy some. She told him how we had followed the signs and were now lost. The least he could do was sell her some honey to take back home with us. The man was nice enough to smile and nod. He sold mom four quarts of honey and several honey sticks. He also threw in some candy that was made of honey and a honey cake. He said he couldn’t save it for the next day. As he was getting ready to leave, I asked what was the quickest way to get back to the interstate. All we had to do was drive down the road we were on for twenty miles, and we would be back on the interstate about thirty miles beyond where we got off. We got back to the interstate in the same area we wanted to stop for dinner and get some rest. Mom wasn’t hungry because while I was driving, she ate all the honey cake the man had given her.
