Student Driver

First Lesson

I am so glad that Flar was home in time for the first lesson. He promised to teach the boys, and I am not participating in anything more than the inaugural lesson for each. It's been too many years since I learned to drive -- I've forgotten what it was like to learn to steer...

Anyway, Mom and Tigger and I survived the roller coaster ride in back of the van, while Flar led Critter through his first lesson. Idle speed on the downhills, barely any accelerator on the uphills; a slalom of curbs in an almost empty Kohl's parking lot; lots and lots of saintly patience by Flar, who never raised his voice or sounded at all nervous, for that matter. I covered my head with my head at one point.

Critter parked the car in the Cici's lot, and did a better job than my dad usually does. ;)

I'm thinking I'll let Flar handle the clutch lessons too, when the time comes.

And here I'd thought I'd used up all the man's patience.

Yes, it is rather early.

A milestone of caring and affection was reached on the day that Flar finally realized the question was necessary. "When do you sleep, Knight?"

I appear to find that question more and more appropriate for myself.

I worked 8:15 to 4:15 tonight, then cooked bacon and made french toast. Now I'm waiting for the first inkling of waking from the sleepyheads in the house, so I can crawl into bed. They were all in bed by 10; shouldn't somebody be awake by now?

Yes, I'm killing time.

Stuff I really need to get around to writing about:

Flar has his new car. Critter has his mini-van, and a driving permit. ooh, err, brain melting... want sleep.
