So, I thought I’d share a funny story that happened this week as we headed out of town on our yearly family beach camping trip.
I rode in one car with my daughter who was driving. (which is so awesome that I don’t have to be behind the wheel at all times these days!) Hubby took the boys in a second vehicle with most of our luggage and supplies.
As we drove along on the freeway, I was zoning out after a rather hectic morning, (I mean, seriously, when you are staying busy with a crazy long checklist, it never fails that things will always come up and work to try and derail your plans. Not so much, luck!)
All of a sudden, my daughter shouts out, “What’s he doing???” in an exasperated and very annoyed tone. (they seem to pick up LOTS of things from their parents…lol) 😉
I glanced to her left and saw a car keeping in line with our vehicle. She was trying to have them either get ahead or slightly behind us, with no luck. I didn’t really see the driver but assumed they were just keeping pace and weren’t really aware of how annoying the pace was to my daughter.
For some reason, I decided to make a second attempt to REALLY look at what this “person” was doing and leaned forward in my seat enough to see that there actually two young men in the other car who were smiling and trying so hard (obviously not successful) to gain the attention of my 18 year old driver.
Apparently my attention surprised them (probably since they didn’t see me as well in the passenger seat) and they finally sped along and stopped their attempts to impress my daughter. She thought that it was hilarious! Here,she was annoyed and then when I explained how they really couldn’t see me until I leaned forward and fixed my attention on them and they both shot looks of “HOLY CRAP! That’s her mom!” bahahahahahaha =D
About five minutes after this happened, the freeway was slowed down and stopped by a highway patrol car. Obviously there was something ahead of us and we were left sitting in a parked car for at least 10 loooooong minutes and we happened to be parked directly behind these “friendly” young men’s car. They obviously weren’t too thrown off of their antics yet, as they both opened their car doors and jumped out to run all the way around the car and back to their original seats…smiling and laughing and glancing one last time towards my daughter.
Seems like fate fate gave us a good smile after our very stressful morning!!
Do you find humor in your days when you most need it?
