Tennis and Driving: The Day Dad Went Crazy (101 Things #18)

Every dad loses his mind from time to time. Yesterday was one of those days for me.

It was Ariana's day for bonding time with me, and it was a perfect spring day in Chico. We went to the local park for some tennis. The girl almost ran me to death! And we were just casually smacking the ball back and forth. We weren't even playing a real match. Of course, the last time I played tennis was in college, so that shouldn't have been too big a surprise, I suppose.

When I'd had enough tennis and we'd gotten ourselves rehydrated, I decided I still hadn't tortured myself enough. I took Ariana to a deserted parking lot and let her practice driving the Suburban for a few minutes. I'm still around to write this post, so I consider the driving lesson a raging success.
