Exhilarating and Embarrassing.

You know what teenage kids are like, especially girls. Always embarrassed about their parents. Yes?
We have a daughter named Sarah. But when she was born my wife Patsy and I couldn’t agree on a name. Her birthday was July 14th 1974. Now that just happened Bastille day( 185 years before). The French equivalent to the American 4th July. So being Bastille day she was, in the interim, nick named Fifi. The name never wore off.
Fifi always had plenty of friends visit and the first question they always asked was “Mr M, would you please take us for a ride in your old car”?
Yes, of course I would. They’d all pile in. Up the road we’d go honking and waving at oncoming cars pretending we knew them. One could plainly see the confusion on their faces. The visiting girls getting right in the spirit. Fifi sliding below window level with embarrassment. Then up town. Honking at any boys on the footpath. And waving to of course. Under the seat Fifi would slide.
God, you can be an embarrassment dad.!
I know many things,
But I don't know everything,
Sometimes I forget things.

And there are times when I have a long memory.
