When the girls and I went out to see how it was going, Lily noticed Dan's clothes. He often wears his Carhartt pants to work on the car or his bikes or other "man stuff", but Lily had never seen his Carhartt jacket. She asked Dan, "Why do you have a shirt that matches your pants?" Dan shrugged and I said, "Because it's very important to be fashionable when you're working on your car."
Lily just gave me a weird look and said, "It is?"
You gotta admit, a man with his hands deep in the bowels of a car is pretty sexy.
"Can I be a mechanic when I grow up, Daddy?" Only if you can learn to cuss like a sailor.
Poor Dan had a very frustrating day down in the garage. Mom was at work, so we didn't have an extra car to go back and forth to the parts shop. He ended up making three trips into town on his bike on Saturday, another trip on Monday, and by Tuesday, the parts shop finally had exactly what he needed and he was able to complete the job. It was one time that we were thinking that $400.00 truck payment wasn't so bad!
Nice work, Bin!
