|"C'mon, Mom! It's time to head out on an adventure!"|
Mom (of course) said she was in, then looked at Dad. Dad said, and this is where things got interesting, "Let's all go!" Wowzers! All of us! How exciting! My instincts kicked in and I said it as fast as I could -- "I've got shotgun!!!"
|Me, riding shotgun. View from Mom in the backseat, as she did NOT call 'shotgun'!|
You've gotta be quick around here.
|"Rats! I didn't know about that!"|
We headed out of town. It struck me that if I was in Australia or the UK or places like that, I'd look like I was driving!
|"How cool would that be, huh, Dad?"|
"Oh, yeah, Zim."
"Hey, looks like trouble up ahead. We should slow way down."
Dad said I was doing a special kind of driving called "backseat driving" and it was every bit as involved as the real deal!
|"What's with the dude with the flag, Dad? And how do I get a gig like that?"|
We waited somewhere close to a million minutes there. I thought it was pretty cool, but never once did I get that guy to look at me. I'm sure if he had seen me, he would have let us go sooner.
Ha roo roo roo! Cam had it right the first time!
|"Oh, yeah! We're flyin' now!"|
Seriously. Doesn't it look like I'm in the driver's seat? Of course, I guess if I was in Australia, I'd be on the wrong side of the road. That probably wouldn't be a good thing.
|"Ha roowooroo! Probably not, Zimmie!"|
Anyway, we were just practicing going on a road trip. All four of us hadn't ever tried going somewhere in one of the vehicles together. Mom and Dad said we did so well that we can try it again soon! Two things to say about that -- YEA! and I've got shotgun!!!!
