R/C racing

This afternoon I watched 4 cars racing around a small track.

That may sound like a waste of time, but it was the most fun I had in a long time. The cars were all different, although 3 were red, and one was green. (Yes, I am aware that that is a very female comment!!). The green one was a quad bike with a driver on it (who kept getting "hurt" every time the quad tipped over, and consequently, he sat at awkward angles which was also half the fun).

Being a chick, of course, I did not pay attention to what type of cars they were, but they had suspensions like monster trucks, and fat wheels.

Watching them race round the small track, jumping over the 3 ramps was surprisingly lots of fun, and I can see that they only have 2 speeds - flat out, or upside down.

Every now and then the drivers would have to jump into the track and "right" the cars, also putting the man straight on the bike. At one stage, he was almost flat on the bike, and could not see where he was going. At that stage, there was also a malfunction on the bike, and it would not go. I choose to believe that this is because he could not see where he was going, and consequently refused to drive anywhere. lol

It was tremendous to watch these cars race around the track jumping, colliding, rolling, tipping, crashing, and just zooming around the track. But the noise and smell was also part of the fun. The smell of the fuel is similar to the smell I remember from when we used to fly model aeroplanes with baby Bee engines. It must be a similar fuel mixture. It is a particular smell, and took me right back to those days when my brothers and I would go flying with my Dad.

Dads are special, and despite their mistakes, they all do the best they can. I love my Dad.

Maybe one day I will have the liberty to tell him that. In the mean time, I will tell other people who will listen.

I love my Dad too, although when i was 7(ish) i decided i wasnt going to love him anymore. I squished it down for a number of years. But it never went away. I hope you get the chance to tell him. x x

Why can't you tell your dad how you feel?

That is the question.
