Being the late bloomer that i am, I will be seventeen in six days and still i am without a lisence. I am nothing more than a ignorant driving menace trying to make it from my house to safeway and back.you can excuse me a wee bit because i am having to learn the whole deal on a clutch, but the majority of my failure results from nothing short of laziness. but i actually tried yesterday. And i ended up getting stuck in a sage bush trying to make a u-turn. of course there was plenty of room to make the turn, and anyone else with more steering wheel finesse than i, which is everyone, could have made that turn easily. Eventually i made it to the gas station, undoubtly with bits of sage wilting in the grill, and learned how to pump gas. while the subaru was getting it's fill of fosil fuels, my mom and i tryed to help a lady open that little door thing over the gas cap, but to no avail. i successfully pulled out into oncoming traffic and made my way home, missing the mailbox by a hair as i slid behind the 4-runner. i think people should just drive arund in those four person bicyle car things you see over on the rec trail. that i could handle. although, that couild be sort of scary going down carmel hill, and it would definetly make changing in the car impossible, for most anyway. i'll bet michael would still do it. but you wouldn't want to get anything caught in the bike chain. anyways, i leave these obstacles of transportation for another to solve and go work on my u-turns some more.
