Things aren't always what they appear

Son passed his driver's test yesterday! I can't tell you how many people have responded with, "Stay off the sidewalks!" Ha. Ha...

He had an appointment yesterday afternoon, so we took his car. He's pretty puffed-up, considering he didn't get marked off for anything on his test. He just exhuded an I'm-the-best-driver-ever attitude.

So, we're cruising along the road, and this guy in a pickup pulls up beside Son. We look over, and he's doing this thumbs-up motion at Son.

"Look!" my confident kiddo says. "He likes my car!" Goofy grin in place, he returns the thumbs-up sign and says, "Thank you!" He looks like a proud daddy.

He pulls ahead, but the guy comes alongside again. This time, he's rolling his window down.

"Up top!" he says, motioning again. "Your iPod is on top of the car!"

Son's grin falls, and he reaches to the top. He drops his iPod on the console. I'm starting to laugh, when the guy pulls up again.

"Your phone!"

Son reaches up again and retrieves his precious cell phone.

Good thing for soft Landau tops, or I'm sure the things would have flown off miles ago.

I wave a huge "Thank you!" to the man and he pulls away.

Son is slightly humbled.

I laughed all the way home. "Thumbs-up" indeed!

True, Gringa! But you know what I saw yesterday? I looked outside as he pulled away from the house -- with his iPod on top again!

Dang, kiddo! LOL
