Today, my car decided it wanted to drive by itself to Lower Woodland Skatepark in my hometown of Seattle during the workday. As a good car owner, I wouldn’t let it go by itself and had to accompany it. The car wouldn’t leave until the work day was over and I was forced to stay. Because of my phone being in the car, I missed a call from my 12-year-old son. When car was ready to go home, I called my son, but I did not let the boy know where mom and the car were. I pretended I was still at work. No information is not a lie. He would have been bummed that he was stuck at home while mom skated.
It was sooo much fun!!
