Failure May As Well Be Dale-ure

I had the grand idea of making some kids' day yesterday morning. I was behind a semi and saw the kids trying to get the truck driver to honk his horn at them. He wasn't budging. I guess he just wanted to focus on turning left right in front of them. It was almost as if he was taunting them by delaying his turn longer than he needed to.

I snagged a pic of the driver:

So I wanted to make up for the truck driver's selfishness. As I drove by, I wondered if the kids would try to get me to honk. Nope. I wasn't a cool, big construction semi so I went unnoticed. Didn't matter. I honked anyway.

I looked in the rear view mirror to watch their reactions and got nothing but stares. One boy, who was trying the hardest with the semi, just stood there, seemingly dumbfounded. It was so funny (to me at least.)

But alas! I didn't fail completely. Even though I received no response to my efforts, as soon as the kids put two and two together, they were trying to get the cars behind me to honk. I did that.
