Like in a video game

Our short bicycle trip is coming to an end. Everything went amazingly well. We swam in a lake, rode 160km, enjoyed hours upon hours of forest air, cooked together, ate ice cream. We talked a lot.

I’ve heard a saying once: the best thing you can do for your child is to take ‘em on a road trip.

My kid was playing with random things all the time. Several times he would sit at a window and hit bugs that sat on the other side of a mosquito net. “Look dad, like in a video game!”

I remember playing a “hit the fly” game on my SNES 25 years ago. Well, the metaphor of hitting the fly went completely in the opposite direction!
