A few weeks ago I got my driving permit on my first try (YAY!). When the lady took a picture of me for my permit, she had to retake it because I had “a lot of hair.” Uhh thanks? I take pride in my magnificent hair.
My mom let me drive to our house the ‘back way’ at night. Well we were scooting along when suddenly we see this little thing jumping across the road. . . Turns out it was a little frog! He sprung about 2 feet in the air each time he jumped. You could practically hear the little *BOING* sound. Anyways, my mom was making nervous noises like “AHHH!”. I came to a “halting” stop, as they say, so I could avoid the little dude (thinking my mom was wanting me to stop) but wait! “Kolaiah, there’s a car behind you!!! Don’t stop!!!” says my mom.
Another time I was driving, my mom had me pull into a gas station so we could feed the car. I parked about five feet away from the pump which wasn’t a very happy thing.
Today was a bunch of firsts in driving for me. It was my first time driving on the interstate (That experience was a wreck-free success). For the first time today I went through the Wendy’s drive through. I was all excited at first, but when I pulled up I said, “I don’t want to talk to a stranger!” My mom replied with, “Yeah you do.” In that “Hey, the stranger is giving you food.” tone of voice.
Here’s a little poem I wrote based on my knowledge of driving:
The thing is, driving is fun
I’d rather be in front of the wheel than out for a run.
Accelerating and stopping
Affects your speedometer’s rising and dropping.
But everybody knows that.
You may possibly not know that you should have your headlights on
If visibility is less than 500 feet.
That is one random fact that stuck out to me.
I enjoy the word hydroplaning.
It makes me think of a submarine flying.
I have noticed that fathers are more laid back
Than mothers are when their kiddos are driving.
Maybe it’s taught in the parenting school class.
Do you think maybe they teach it in mass?
Driving is that kind of thing, that is done in so many different ways
In the classroom and on tests
You drive to impress
It also varies based on personalities
That’s just an observation of mine
