Eventually your children will surpass you in all things cool and fun. They'll tell you their stories and you'll be all, "ya well you suck!"
I've done some pretty cool things myself ... in this thing we call life. I've jumped from an airplane and fell for 5000 feet before deploying a parachute. I've polar bear swam in the Arctic Ocean, a few hundred miles south of the North Pole. There are maybe one or two more but they're probably illegal so ... ya ... moving right along ...
My oldest girl spent the night at her friends last weekend. We packed her stuff the night before so she could take it with her to school the next day and not have to come home on the school bus first. They walked to the public library where they were later picked up by said friend's Dad.
She forgot her stuff.
I took it to her.
I arrived and they were outside jumping on the trampoline.
Hi, are you guys having fun?
"I got to go for a ride in a really fast car! Tell Daddy when you get home."
She points to a black car parked in front of the garage. It's dusk so I can't really make out what type of car but maybe BMW, Lexux or something ... looks like that type of classy fancy ... Jaguar possibly even but whatever. I tell her that she's lucky and that I'll let her Dad know. As I turned to walk back to my own car she called out, "it's the one with a trident".
A huh? I don't know what that is ... she's probably wrong and it's a horse or a duck. I mean who's ever heard of a trident car before? NO ONE.
As per my instructions I told her Dad about her ride. He didn't know what the trident was either.
So I Google'd it.
Then I said HOLYFUCK!
In all my years on this planet I have never met a person who owns anything with this caliber. Never. Who the hell do you know that owns a Maserati?????!
When I picked her up the next morning ... in my ghetto-mobile ... which also happens to go faster than everyone else (except the Maserati) ... I asked the question. The most important question you would ask someone who went for a ride in a ... well ... luxury car, "Did you at least go fast?"
"OMG I was pinned to the seat!!!! Couldn't even move."
