It was going so well.

And then I broke my driving instructor's car.

Sigh. It's been a right Monday ...

*I should add, cracked the hubcap. No injuries except my pride!

Jeremy Edwards said...

That must happen all the time, don't you think? They probably have a mountain of spare hubcaps in the driving-school closet.

My oldest daugher (now almost 25) had her first accident while in a driver's ed car (they were hit) - she's only had one very minor fender bender since - so maybe it's a good omen?

better a hubcap than a kneecap

btw, almost done with New Rakes and loving it!

Someday I'll entertain you with a few of my stories about teaching my kids to drive.

Trust me. Don't sweat the hubcap. You'll do great.

Nikki Magennis said...

Thanks, all! I just wish I'd learned to drive when I was young and indestructible!

(And Robin, that's great! Hope you like the ending!)

EllaRegina said...

Oh, dear, Nikki. I'm glad you're OK. Like Jeremy said, it probably happens all the time. You'll make it. Hang on.

Nikki Magennis said...

Hey EllaRegina,

Oh yes, I hang on for dear life! Everyone keeps saying one day it will click. I sincerely hope it does click, rather than going 'crunch'...

I passed on my third test, so just keep at it and it'll work out in the end.
"I like driving in my car -
I'm satisfied it's got this far"

No one's done that song yet, right?

Or maybe...
"You live, you learn..."

Oh, honey! Damn it! So close...

Do you get to try again?

Nikki Magennis said...

Hi hi hi,

Thanks, Janine. I really hope so. Last night I just burst into tears after stalling for the nth time. For some reason I just can't *click* the clutch control!

And hi, Wanderlust - is that you, S?! It wasn't a test, just a lesson - I need LOTS more practise before I sit the test!

Wander.Lust said...

Oh, it is. Why's it say Wanderlust? Lol. New computer. Have to change my settings. And whew, glad it's just practice!
