I was ‘minding’ my kids this morning – this involves us listening to Gorillaz in the car, drinking coffee and eating muffins, buying a vintage shirt, buying recovery drink powder and compression socks and getting my hair cut – good dad stuff generally.
As I parked our anonymous people carrier I spotted 4 French registered 2CVs parked up. 3 of them in a row. I dragged the kids over to see the cars – they were all completely underwhelmed.
Not that I ever want to own a 2CV but what this photograph symbolises to me is that a group of friends had an idea, they planned it, met up and had drinks about it, convinced their wives it was a good idea (the Irish have shops or some other sort of lady lie) and finally they went off on their adventure….in 4 2CVs –
That is what life is all about.
Later, when we got home and after the obligatory run I was passing my son’s room. He had set up a pig and a rabbit to talk to each other.
Which would you choose – the rabbit or the pig?
I decided the pig is your buddy – it just seems like that to my sick mind.
