Women Drivers

After school this past Wednesday, Cooper ran to my pickup instead of going at his usual leisurely pace. He was in a hurry to get to the barbershop so he could beat everyone else and not have to wait.  He was out of breath when he jumped in my pickup and said, “Come on Dad, let’s go. I don’t want anyone to beat us there.” I assured him I was going to get him there as soon as I could.

I took off at what I thought was plenty fast, but within seconds of when we left Cooper franticly says, “Come on Dad, can’t you go any faster? Why don’t you try and drive like Mom on Sunday mornings when she’s late for church!”

And so I just had to ask, “So … just how does Mom drive on Sunday mornings when she’s late for church?”

“Like a maniac,” he said without skipping a beat.

Now that’s good stuff right there!

    Haha! Don’t you love the honesty of kids? Not that your wife drives like a maniac, but I love the things they say! I’m sure my kids would say the same about how I drive 😉

  3. Amy O'Connor says:

    I love it! My kids have a tendency to do the same thing and they totally do not get “the look” when they telling dad something right in front of me!

    My Youth Pastor was pulled over one Sunday morning runing late. In his own words – “He was flying!”…The police officer told him, “If I give you a warning you have to tie it into a sermon about God’s mercy…if not the warning will become a ticket.” My youth pastor agreed that he would do just that – turned out the cop’s parents went our church – and they got a call that afternoon from their son the cop – “Did ____ happen to mention being pulled over this morning?” I like that BOTH these men said what they mneant and meant what they said. They ended up becoming friends — oh, and the cop complained later that the whole thing backfired on him because my Youth Pastor revealed the “never fail” place he sat for years catching speeders!! Gotta give a little – to get a little………
