Pinewood derby

Mr. B. decided to stick with his design for last year’s car, which unexpectedly took third place in the pack’s race. But he couldn’t resist decorating this year’s car with a full-body decal of red and yellow flames topped off with lines of menacing skulls. Very second grade. At least it will save painting and inhaling the fingernail polish we used last year to make the paint sparkle. Now that the wood is cut–this year by one of the den father’s with a band saw–we need to enlist a family friend with a belt-sander to help him sand it smooth, and polish the axles so the plastic wheels turn faster. Like last year we’ll go into the race not expecting to win anything. But you never know.
