related team building exercise. The method used last night was mini race cars.
First of all my "lead foot" days are long gone. Secondly, my butt looks awfully big compared to those tiny seats. And thirdly, the helmets smooshed down my hair! But I wanted to be a good sport so I suited up and got behind the wheel.
The first race was a sort of elimination race. I was happy to just sort of putt putt around the course and not get in anyone's way. Sure people pointed and laughed, but only behind my back because I was married to the boss. I did NOT come in last, so I gained a little confidence and was actually a little excited about the second round.
I asked how fast I could take the curves and was given some pointers...This time I was ready!
I got behind that wheel and after one lap of getting used to the car again, I roared to life! I was flying! Taking curves fast and wide (so no one could pass me) when, about 3 laps in, SOMEONE hit me from behind and caused me to spin out! I added a full minute and a half to my time waiting for the guy to come push my car out into the lane again (there's no reverse on these little cars). I continued only to be bumped again!!!! And this time I recognized the offending driver it was my own sweet JOE! Stunned and shocked I finished the race, got out of the car and punched him in the stomach!
I woke up kinda sore this morning. Something tells me a career in NASCAR is not in my future! LOL
