I stayed-up late last night waiting for my 17 yo daughter to return from her date with her boyfriend.
 
It's about 11:30pm in our very quite neighborhood and I'm comfortable downstairs on the couch watching an old episode of Star Trek on Netflix when I hear a strange sound. I pause the episode to better hear the sound and it's someone honking their horn. I open the front door to see what all the commotion is about and there's a car out front with loud music playing and with its horn honking.
 
I assume it's my daughter and her boyfriend trying to get my attention, (as I recognize the car) so I wave at them and the honking stops. So I close the door, and the honking continues. I flash the house lights, but the honking continues. I look around for my shoes, as I'm barefoot and it's cold outside. The honking continues. Fearing the reaction of the neighbors to the honking, I go outside in my bare feet and bathrobe and walk up to the car.
 
It's my daughter and her boyfriend kissing in the front seat; she in his arms against the steering wheel --- hence the honking. I knock on the driver's window. He stops, looks straight up at me, but goes right back to "work". I'm thinking "wow, this guy is really cheeky...". I knock on the window again, harder this time. He stops again, finally recognizes that someone is actually there and it's her Dad! He gets a horrified and terrified look on his face, but I'm actually laughing. My daughter gets out of the car laughing, and he drives quickly away.
 
My daughter is shocked and embarrassed to learn the horn was honking while they were kissing. Hilarity ensued.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.-John Q. Adams
You must accept one of two basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not alone in the universe. And either way, the implications are staggering.-Wernher von Braun
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.-Albert Einstein
