a dream come true

Thursday, June 5th, 2008

last week i went over to my friend isaac’s house for dinner and to play in the back yard. it’s always a new adventure…that day it was a river. for some reason he wanted to create a river in the back yard down by the sand box. he liked it…but his parents didn’t seem to be too excited about it.

as the afternoon/evening continued, he decided he wanted to go for a drive. when isaac says he wants to go for a drive, he doesn’t mean he wants his parents to chauffeur him around central pa. he wants to drive his power wheels truck!

i was always envious of the kids in the commercials who had a power wheels car or truck. they always looked like so much fun. the idea of a kid driving was astounding. no longer did you have to wait till you were 16. you could have the enjoyment of driving even at a young age. It was awesome. But as the years passed, no power wheels truck arrived. it soon became clear that my childhood dream of driving one of those bad boys would never come true. then, a miracle occurred. his dad, scott (you remember him b/c he designed the new award winning messiah college homepage), turned to me and asked how much i weighed. at first i was a bit offended (not really), but then i saw what he was thinking. perhaps i still could realize my dream!as i hopped into the power wheels i realized that these things really aren’t made for adult sized people. in order to hit the gas pedal i had to reach down and use my hand. the rest is history. with isaac in the bed of the truck and me all sprawled out in the driver’s and passenger’s seats, we were burnin’ rubber and takin’ names. so thank you isaac, for making a dream come true.
