12:45: I turn in the questionnaire.

13:30: They give me my lemonade contrast. I need to drink the top of the plastic cup in an hour and save the bottom for when they call me back.

13:30: All done my drink except for the bottom portion, just waiting for them to call me back.

21:15: We run into Road Construction around Beaumont.
