Mileage

Person One:   I love summer but hate how it takes longer to get places.

Person Two:   I know – lots of other drivers on the road, people going to their cottages, all out and about.

One:    No – it’s because it’s warmer out.

Two:    Yes, more people are going more places making traffic hell.

One:    No – it’s because when it’s warmer, miles expand. Like lots of things that get bigger when heated up.

Two:    Wha–? That’s crazy.

One:    No really. It’s because the miles are expanding. Literally. It’s thermodynamics. And backed up by evidence: think about how long it takes to drive to a cottage in the summer. Way longer than in the winter.
