Last night I took my daughter on a date with a knife, a flashlight, and a screwdriver…

She’d been asking for a date for 3 days.

Not the let’s take a walk around the block date.

No.

She wanted adventure.

 

“Babe?  A little help? It’s 9:30 pm. It needs to be a quick date but memorable…” I commented to the wife…

Heather walked away for 3 minutes…

She walked back with this…

“You want me to take my daughter to steal some emeralds out of a mansion in west Nashville?” I asked.

“No dummy.  You guys are gonna leave a mark” she said.

And with that I got it.

“Sohaila!!!  C’mon baby!  Daddy has the date figured out!”

I told her that the date would probably only last 30 minutes but it would remain forever…

She smiled…  I handed her our weapons… and we headed to…

I’ll leave the location of the date just for us.

15 minutes of carving later we rushed back to the van and sped off…

“THAT WAS AWESOME DADDY!!!!”

 

It was 15 minutes.

It may or may not have been on public or private land. Maybe it was in my best friends back yard.  Maybe it was in front of the Nashville Police Department.  You’ll never know.

So relax your vandalism comments… 😉

We headed back home knowing that we now have a tree.

Our tree.

It’s better that way…
