It was a nice Friday summer morning. Victoria and I were alone so I thought I would take her out.
First we went to the neighborhood bank. The parking lot is always crowded but this morning it was worse because an SUV was parked with half its body sticking out into the center lane. As I maneuvered around the SUV I wondered why the driver parked the way he did. A few minutes later though I did almost as poor of a parking job.
After I got out of the minivan I realized how much it was sticking out I had already taken Victoria out of her car seat and was enjoying holding her. Instead of putting her back in her car seat I got into the driver’s seat with Victoria on my lap. I had Victoria hold the steering wheel and then I drove the minivan forward a few more feet.
When I got out of the minivan I saw an elderly lady staring at me with a most peculiar expression. I said hello but she just kept staring at me. At first I was puzzled why she was looking at me until I realized she probably thought I drove the whole time like that with Victoria.
I thought of explaining to her what had happened but decided it probably wasn’t necessary. I’m just glad she didn’t call the police.
