Today I am grateful for not getting into an accident while driving back home like a maniac to get my daughter’s swimming suit*. And speeding tickets? Oh well, you can’t get everything, right?
*Yes, I am that mother who takes her daughter to swimming lessons, arrives there early enough to pat herself on the back (because she is normally either a. late b. stressing that she will be late) only to realise that in the whole arsenal of
crap stuff that a 6 year old needs for swimming (including an outfit for “clothed” swimming which they practice for safety) she has forgotten the most important thing – the swimming suit.
