Lent update

I took the kids to Disneyland last weekend so I had to drive in LA. I know that I promised to be good to my fellow man and treat him kindly but understand this is LA.

I just got into town and was on my way from the airport to visit a good friend of mine in Costa Mesa when a man in a big 'ol pick up truck sped passed me, driving like a crazy man almost smashing into my front bumper. It was very close and very scary. As luck would have it, I pulled up beside the guy at the next light! ... and ....called him an idiot. That's right. I rolled down the passenger side window, where my son was sitting, and calmly told him he almost killed me and my kids and I thought he was a big, fat idiot. He responded by mouthing these words, "Shut the f... up - you B...."
That was a nice little banter between two adults in front of my hopelessly embarrassed kids.
I know I should have taken a deep breath, let it go and not risk a potential road rage incident. I know I should have been better. I know I was wrong. I also know I should have given up wine again this year instead of trying to be good.


  1. Children have to learn to function on the highways of America. Simply good parenting.

  3. I love my family. They're so sensible and understanding.
