Deep in the Heart

Cristian (looking at the cover of Texas Monthly): It’s so weird how most Texans vacation in Texas.

Dana: Well, yeah. Texas is big.

Cristian: Still though………….

Dana: Cristian. If you left Boston and drove straight West for 12 hours, where would you be?

Cristian: Ohio?

Dana: In Texas, you would still be in Texas.

Cristian: Really? 12 hours?

Dana: Texarkana to El Paso. 12 hours.

Cristian: Jesus Christ. It’s like living in a black hole.

Dana: It’s a lone star, Cristian.



  1. Not to get picky, but if you drove east from Boston, you really couldn’t get more than a few minutes out of town before you drowned in the Atlantic.

    Unless you’re caught in airport traffic, at which point 12 hours is actually plausible.

  3. Yes, most of my vacations as a kid were to West Texas (Big Bend or Guadalupe Mountains). I grew up in Rockdale (near Austin) and it would take nine hours to get there! I didn’t really start seeing the world outside of Texas until I was an adult. John Steinbeck wrote: “Once you are in Texas it seems to take forever to get out, and some people never make it.”
