Danielle tagged me to do a "How Was I Supposed to Know" theme meme.
I stole my brother's car keys off the table to go visit Mom who was in the hospital. Brother was sleeping off a hangover. I was 16. I never had a driving lesson in my life, but I did have a permit. So of course I could drive. I mean how hard could it be? I'd seen it done hundreds of times!
Off I went, driving along the straight boulevard, feeling so mature, listening to the radio.
HOW WAS I SUPPOSED TO KNOW that I had to straighten out the steering wheel after I made a turn????????????????
(I'll tell the rest of the story some day!)
Five things I'm grateful for today:
2) Ice water on a hot day
3) Body butter
4) Full tank of gas (but now I can't eat!) ;-(
5) Quarter moons
