Broke down in Oklahoma

Just got a call from my wife. She and my son were driving in Oklahoma, on their way to LA, when the car broke down. So they are being towed to a town with a mechanic and a place to sleep. I did offer to drive out and help them, if necessary, but hopefully it will not be necessary.

Oklahoma - okay!
Broken down - oy vey!

Ok, back to reading The Secret History. You know, all along, this book has been making me think of an old book, The Greeks and the Irrational, by E.R. Dodd. Sure enough, at the start of Book II, there's a quote from the book.

It would be odd
Not to think of Dodd
Who wrote of Dionysus
The illusion-making god.
