purpose of roads: to connect food joints

Roads exist for me…mainly to furnish reasonably direct connections between cafés and chili parlors, taco wagons and beaneries, eat shacks and confectioneries, burger joints and frozen-custard stands, barbecue sheds and fish camps.  In other words, roads are there to tie one reason for living to another.
