Eric's friend, and band mate, Chase is a race car driver. He spends a lot of time building his own car, no biggie. He was having his last in-town races of the season. Eric decided to take Cordelia on a father-daughter date to the racetrack. We weren't really sure if she'd have a blast or if she'd be put off by the noises.
Thankfully she had a wonderful time. They watched as Chase did really well and then had to skeedaddle as a storm blew into town.
When she returned home she told me all of the details. She was covered in dirt that had blown onto them from the dusty track as they made their retreat from the storm. She didn't care about the dirt. She was toting a race flag. She was so into it that I drew her a little racetrack on a piece of paper and she races a toy car on it.
