Timmy and Samantha Blomquist pulled off what was once presumed to be impossible this week when they successfully tricked their perturbed father into turning the car around a second time.
This ingenious feat of manipulation came about on a family trip to a local mini-golf course. When the kids kept kicking his backseat, Blomquist patriarch Richard issued a stern warning to the back seat: behave or, so help him God, he’ll turn this car around.
“Well. He did,” confirmed 6-year-old Timmy. “We thought he was bluffing, but he actually turned the car around.”
“Luckily, we had an ace up our sleeve,” added Samantha.
With mini-golf abruptly canceled and the car now on course for the Blomquist homestead, the kids had no choice but to get their dad to turn the vehicle around a second time, completing the 360-degree pivot and pointing their SUV back in the direction of mini-golf.
“I didn’t think there was any way this would work,” remembered Timmy. “But sure enough, all it took was twenty solid minutes of off-key singing for dad to threaten to turn the car around, forgetting that he, like, already just did that.”
“He seemed pretty annoyed when we wound up at the mini-golf course instead of our house,” Samantha continued. “But mostly I think he’s just mad we got one over on him.”
When asked about future collaborations, the kids revealed they are strategizing a series of staged quarrels over the family iPad for their next trip to Grandma’s which, if executed perfectly, could eventually turn the car around all the way into Disneyland.
