For this past Father’s Day, I really wanted to get Matt something he really wanted. Not just a generic gift, but something that he would love.
Matt is not a person who loves ‘things’. His love language is acts of kindness.
After driving home from a session in Edmonton, I came up with the best idea! I immediately whipped out my phone and did voice to text and wrote the following:
Happy Fathers Day to you
I thought about maybe getting you something new
Maybe a coat or a new necktie
But then I had an idea that had me saying “my, oh my!”
It doesn’t cost money, not a single cent
But from the heart it is meant!
At the end of July we are going on a driving trip
and I am not even allowed to give one single driving tip
You’ll be allowed to drive in harmony and peace
My backseat controlling critique will have to cease.
I hate to admit it, because I don’t want to be that person, but I am the worst backseat driver. Ironically, I really dislike when people backseat drive when I am behind the wheel. Thankfully, I married a man who is very tolerant and patient, because I am out of control with my driving critiques (I feel that using the term “driving critiques” is much nicer and less crazy-control-freak sounding).
So I have promised Matt, that on our road trip this summer, I am not allowed to say anything with regards to his driving. He was thrilled, yet speculative as to whether I would be able to uphold my promise. I will have to bite my tongue and turn on an audiobook really loud.
Looking back, I wish I had just gotten him a necktie.
