We thought about walking, we really did. Then we thought about making an end-run around the rules by driving to a store that lies outside my Google-Mapped, two-mile perimeter. Then we decided that burning more gas chasing a technical victory was not quite in keeping the original spirit of the challenge, said, “Oh, screw it,” and drove. Thirty minutes later, we were home with supplies.
...When it came down to it, we just didn’t feel like struggling through the cold downpour for 40 minutes, desperately trying to protect the cheesy goodness from going soggy. So we drove.
