35. Missing my friends!

Doug tells me that he is missing his adventures with his friends. I was surprised because I thought they had been connecting on the internet almost every day. I guess it has been hard for him to give up driving fast and racing with his friends at the drag track.

I asked him what he thought would help him to connect with his friends and feel the excitement of racing adventures or crazy stunts that they used to do together. He had to think about it for a while. Sometimes it takes time to think of a new activity that will bring you as much fun and excitement as the old familiar games. But do you know what?

Doug came to me this morning and announced that he and Sid had found a new racing video game that they could play and challenge each other, right from their own homes. They asked Larry Limo to help them discover a game that would be ok for them to play, and they found it. Maybe you could ask your parents to help you find a new activity or game on the computer or in your game closet so you could get happier at home? Maybe you will invent one and send it to me here so we can share it with other dragsters and friends?

Doug learned that “you can’t always get what you want, but if you try hard enough, you can always get what you need.”
