There was this loving grandfather who always made a special effort to spend time with his son’s family on weekends. Every Saturday morning he would take his 7-year-old granddaughter out for a drive in the car for some quality time. Just he and his granddaughter.
One particular Saturday he had a bad cold and really didn’t feel like being up at all. He knew his granddaughter always looked forward to their drives and would be disappointed. Luckily, his wife came to his rescue and said that she would take their granddaughter for the drive.
When they returned, the little girl anxiously ran upstairs to see her grandfather who was still in bed. “Well, did you enjoy your ride with grandma?” he asked. “Oh yes Grandpa. It was really wonderful. We didn’t see a single a**hole, Sunday driver, blind bastard, dipshit or son of a b***h anywhere we went!
Having let my readers have some humour, let me just add that my son and heir has forbiden me from driving on our city roads for the simple reason that I am prone to call people either idiots or maniacs, and often so that they can hear. MSAH believes that one day some idiot or maniac may decide to take recourse to more violent measures against me.
