Simon's Blog - May 2, 2006

May 2, 2006

So, I've decided to become the next Tony Stewart. I'm entering the rubber-burning, bumper-banging world of racecar driving! If Frankie Muniz can race cars, why can't I? I don't have a sweet ride like Frankie does yet, since I'm not a rich celebrity and I don't have a driver's license, so I'm starting out by racing in a soapbox derby.

I ordered a soapbox car kit last week and I'm going to start putting together my new wheels this weekend. This means my racecar driving career should be hitting high gear sometime in the next month or so. Soapbox racing may seem slightly lame compared to the high-octane machines the NASCAR crews are driving - but I've got to start somewhere. Soapbox derby this year, go-karts next year, the checkered flag at the Daytona 500 in 2014!

Speaking of fast cars, there's a couple of cool racing flicks I'm looking forward to seeing this summer. Cars is an animated movie about stock cars and Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby has Will Ferrell starring as a rebel NASCAR driver. I saw previews for both of them at the theater last week and they look pretty funny. So, between building cars, racing cars, and watching cars, my summer will be filled with plenty of driving action. Maybe, I'll change by name to Slick Lightning. Anyway, gotta fly... your summer plans.

Later,
Simon

    Is there a particular reason or situation causing you to feel this way? I can't provide much advice other than talk to them about it. Communication is important.

    He is a jerk, but then what ?? He is your best friend . Maybe you should tell him to sleep for an extra hour. It may be a lack of sleep.

No. I don't like those people at the mall. Sometimes, they ask my family and I (usually directed at my mom and sister, but sometimes at me, too. Even though I'm under 13. Not for long though.) if they want their hair done. And sometimes I'm so tempted to say, "No thank you. I did my hair today. Do you think I want it done?" But of course I never do. It's kinda disrespectful. So we just usually say No thank you. My mom, sister, and I now have a solution for that (my idea when I was maybe ages 9-11) Don't make eye contact with them and pretend that they aren't there.
