You are right. that was a not a good idea at all. Especially ride a motorcycle. Your mom said that was “stupid”
I think she is right. I never do it again and never want you to do that. I took a very risky chance.
I wrote my dad after his last email, exclaiming how surprised I was that he would do something so potentially unsafe. This is his response, although it looks like my mom got to him first.
He’s having some regrets about the kind of safety example he’s setting. Luckily for him, he raised a painfully risk-averse daughter, so he shouldn’t worry too much.
