Well, imagine my surprise when her fourth-cousin, Eddie, showed up the other day. As luck would have it, Eddie came into town right when I needed to make a drive to a church for an event I was attending for my "day job". I asked Eddie if he wanted to ride along with me. He was ready before me and waiting outside for me. Here we go.....
Are we about ready to go?
No - I'm a dude. I can do the steps all by myself.
Whew. Lots of steps back here - but I can manage.
Wait for me....I'm coming!
[The look of full step-determination.]
Finished the steps and now coming along on the pathway. Just about there!
Yay! Finally at the van.
What are all these buttons for?
Can I help drive?
Ok, guess I'm ready to go.
Dang - do I have to wear this dumb seat belt?
No - I'm too excited - I can't stay in that seat!
What! Was that a dog?
What do I see down there? Oh....it's your feet.
Cash. Sweet. Cash.
A little hungry, let's grab some hash browns and a drink from McDonald's.
Mmmm....love that morning soda.
And the hash browns - ooooo, laaa, laaa.
Thanks. I'm full now. Burp.
Yup. I think we'll park here.
I can't go in with you? Wait in the car???
Don't worry - the windows were cracked open to give me air.
Happy to report the event went well - and a few short hours later, we head home. Tired.
[Skip to next morning.] [Oh, oh!]
Ummm, what's keeping you? We're ready for a ride! Hoot hoot!
