Making the news
Unfortunately, I missed seeing the actual races (qualifying, then semi-finals, then the finals). I was on a work phone call in a nearby café and was hoping he could get into a later race. But I came out to see him already a victor and watching the consolation rounds.
He’s going to appear in the local paper and that may be his first Google-worthy achievement. I can see this mentioned in his job interviews 20 years from now – So, tell us about your turtle racing experience. What are your secrets?
He did nothing more than make a lucky pick among the rental turtles, then splash it on to victory. But still, it’s really cool to see your child succeed at something, even as mundane as turtle racing.
