Is that a purple buffalo?


You are probably thinking what kind of title is that? Let me tell you a story. Trying to enjoy some of the last few nice days of the year my wife and I have been going for walks as my daughter rides her bike or scooter.

These moments are quite enjoyable. Fresh air, good company, and some exercise. The only problem is my cute little daughter wants to race every few minutes. So being the competitive dad I am every few minutes we race.

I am no Olympic sprinter but my daughter isn’t likely to win the Tour De France anytime soon. Even though she isn’t the fastest he can be tricky. We were racing down the road when she suddenly points and yells “Is that a purple buffalo.”

I turn and look.


Needless to say there was no purple buffalo. Also needless to say I lost the race. Can’t really be to hard on the girl. Winning is certainly fun.
