Ricky Bobby: Wait, Dad. Don't you remember the time you told me "If you ain't first, you're last"?
Reese Bobby: Huh? What are you talking about, Son?
Ricky Bobby: That day at school.
Reese Bobby: Oh hell, Son, I was high that day. That doesn't make any sense at all, you can be second, third, fourth... hell you can even be fifth.
Ricky Bobby: What? I've lived my whole life by that!

TIME:  1:40 PM
PLACE:  St. Mary’s Cafeteria
SUBJECT:  Pinewood Derby

It’s January and that means it’s time for the Cub Scout Pine Wood Derby.  This year, MonkeyBoy’s car came in second in the consolation round (5th place overall).  It was a tight, exciting race between his yellow #39 car and the #10 red car.  In the end, the #10 car prevailed.  My other Webelo ended up winning the whole Derby – Woo hoo for my den!
