When I was younger, my Daddy would let me *win* when I would race him to the car, or the house. As I got older, I would let him *win. One day I was bragging a wee bit too much, and he said: You may be faster than me, but you can not outrun a rock.

He had learned this when he was young. He could out run his brothers, but not the rocks they threw.

I know, a strange one, but it always makes me smile.

I remember trying to make excuses to get to stay up late and my mom would say, I don't care if jesus christ is riding a bicycle across the front lawn, your going to bed! I would always look outside wondering what the hell she was talking about.
