Forget fashion, we are all about function!
See that car in the lead with what looks like band-aids on it? Yep, that's ours! Matt and Brett worked for hours getting his car "just right." Paint, axels, wheels, stickers, weights, (and a few things I'm sworn to secrecy about) . . . I could go on and on. They weighed this car over and over to get it just perfect. It was hand carried in a ziploc bag -UPSIDE DOWN - to the derby. I'm not sure why it had to be upside down - maybe I'm giving away another secret. Who knows? Matt was going to meet us there, straight from work.
We arrived, checked the car in, and it was weighing way too light!! Brett started freaking out. I knew Matt would be dying as well. I whipped out my wallet, dumped out a load of quarters and started taping them to the top of the car. All that time getting the car "just right" and now it's got a load of quarters taped to the top. So much for the paint job! We were all about function at that point. A quick call to Matt, who was stuck in traffic, just got me giggling. I thought he would have a heart attack as he tried to reach us.
Cheering Brett's car on!
Amazingly, he ended up with first place! Wahoo Brett! I kind of like to think that a few band aids and some extra weight can make you a real winner! If it's good for a car, why not people? Think I'll go have a cookie! :)
