The exercise:

Write four lines of prose about: my new car.

Kat took a solo trip to Penticton this morning to run some errands and have an appointment, so I had the boys to myself. The weather was perfectly agreeable, so we went to the park for a few hours. Max bumped into a friend, but also made a couple new friends, which was great to see.

They played hide and seek for a long time which, if you've never seen three four year old boys play it, is an absolute treat to watch. Max showed off by counting to thirty, the boys either giggled or called out 'I'm over/up/down here' if it was taking too long for the seeker to find them, and everybody had a blast.

Back to work tomorrow for four days, then I only get two days off, then it's on for four more days since I traded a couple days with Tammy. Thankfully at the end of that stretch I get six days off to make up for it.

Assuming I survive working eight out of the next ten days.

Mine:

Hey, check out my fresh new ride! I think I'm gonna get some sexy flames put on the side! I'll be on the prowl, I'll be on the attack!

Hey... who put those kid seats in the back?

I'm not sure I'd enjoy watching that kind of Hide and Seek – I'm too competitive to accept that as a reasonable way of playing it. But then I prefer games like Murder in the Dark anyway, and that's better when the kids are older :) And... there's a week left for the next visit to the Dream Kingdom, pretty much. I'm sure you won't see this comment until June, but at least I'll have tried to remind you!
Nice car, all the way up until the end ;-)

My new car
"That was nice of you, letting your mother borrow your new car."
"No... no, I said she could borrow the old one. I mean, she's epileptic, has Parkinson's and gets incontinent when she's nervous so there's no way I'd let her borrow the Lexus."
"She's definitely just driven the Lexus out of the driveway."

Greg - hah, I can just imagine you frowning in disapproval while watching them play :)

Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. This tale won't end well, will it? :D
