Today was a bit different.
My 15 y.o. took me out for his practice driving. It was only the second time he's ever driven a car and he did well.
We started in a parking lot and went to side streets. The downside to side streets is that they can be narrow and the downside to life is that some people cannot parallel park so we had a very near brush with an oversize parked SUV hogging a chunk of the road. I gasped involuntarily but otherwise did not get at all alarmed on the outside. :p
It's actually kind of cute 'cos Chris is saying stuff like, "I can't go out onto the main road because I've never driven behind a car." So innocent-sounding. Even though he's a teen there's still a wee bit of the stuff that I got all mushy about when I towered over him, not the reverse as it is now.
His dad works 7 days a week so we had a nice take away dinner from Sizzling Wok and then went and did our usual Sunday evening thing of mini-golf. "Al," the manager recognized us from last season and said the fees were "on him"! That's $25.75, ladies and gentlemen. My wallet thanks him--and I thought he was a cool dude before.
The rain held off until the 7th hole and by the time we got to the 13th it had stopped but we were soaked. We rode top down and got semi-dry on the way home where we did prezzies--just sensible stuff--clothes. Cool greeting cards though that we mocked up ourselves and printed so a nice ending to the weekend.
I hope everyone had some fun. Here we go--another week!
Take care and make it a good one!
