Pa­ter­nal pay­back

On the day I re­ceived my learner’s per­mit, my father agreed to take me out for a driv­ing les­son. With a big grin, he hopped in be­hind the driver’s seat. “Why aren’t you sit­ting up front on the pas­sen­ger’s side?” I asked. “Kirsten, I’ve been wait­ing for this ever since you were a lit­tle girl,” Dad replied. “Now it’s my turn to sit back here and kick the seat.”

Pop vs Pup

While fly­ing from Den­ver to Kansas City, Kansas, my mother was sit­ting across the aisle from a woman and her eight-year-old son. Mom couldn’t help laugh­ing as they neared their des­ti­na­tion and she heard the mother say to the boy, “Now re­mem­ber — run to Dad first, then the dog.”
