“Baby you can drive my car…”

Watch out, people!!! The unthinkable has begun: I’m on my way to
becoming a driver. A real one. Unlike the one I’ve been unil today.

Which kind am I, you ask? Well…the kind that got her driver’s
license, shove it into some drawer, forgot about it for 7 years and
continues taking endless buses and subways and depending on family
rides. Thank to my wonderful city that lacks public transportation big
time, that is extremely violent specially after 5 pm, and that faces
innondation every summer due to lack of green spaces, I’m now seriously
depending on my independance as a driver

I don’t like driving – in fact I hate driving -, I’m against car
pollution (I think it’s absurd that someone might live and work at the
door of subway stations and yet get the car to go to work…),
I’m afraid of the incredibly heavy traffic in an 11-million-people
metropolis AND I’m not a coordinated person at all, I don’t know how to
calculate spaces or how to look at the rearview mirror, at the
pedestrian that’s crossing the street, the bus that’s trying to pass
you, and the shifting of gears that you need to do all at the same

Which is why my mother found me a school that’s specialized in helping
their clients to overcome all these fears and anxieties and
insecurities to start fucking driving!

Oh and before you say it, arguments such as "those illiterate guys can
drive monster trucks" while me, the university girl, "sweats cold just
at the thought of driving any tiny car even if it’s just up to the
corner over there!" don’t convince me, thank you.

So…I’m starting classes this Tuesday. It’s a total of 15 classes, but
something tells me it’ll take…about…30 classes for me to be
HALF-healed of all my fears and start driving all alone anywhere
anytime I want. Wish me luck…

Vrooommmm vroooooooooommmmmmmmmmm

    soso, maybe you can get one of those new electric hybrids. We got a Toyota Prius for Pam, and she gets nearly 50 mpg with it. I leave it to you to do the metric conversion.Of course I\’m a lead (as in the metal) foot and get much worse mileage.And .. if you make a return trip to the casa, I can teach you a foolproof method for parallel parking. We can practice with the tractor.
