Our daughter just got her temps. This is an exciting time for her, but it does highlight the unfortunate fact that we have just one totally working car and three soon-to-be drivers (our second car technically works, but one must not go over 30 mph, which is sorta hard to tell cuz the speedometer doesn't work (NOTE TO SELF: google how fast 2 rpm's is).
Somehow Rick and I are getting the sick feeling we'll be pushovers (as usual) and be stuck home without a car on a regular basis. Good grief. Life sure does come full circle.
So I'm doing what I do best: concoct far-reaching impractical schemes that will never pan out. And most importantly that I would never even do anyway. Cuz I'm practical. But I like to waste time.
For a short while (minutes) I thought maybe I could find an old golf cart. Cheap and doesn't go too fast. Eh... wouldn't work as I don't think she's that self-actualized YET. Plus the pesky little winter problem. Then I thought maybe she could use my husband's scooter. But then the visual of a big semi smashing into it (and her) pretty much eliminated that thought (and her - UGH!). And then there's that pesky winter problem again.
So on the way to school one day, the answer was right there in front of me! Safe AND cheap! Plus if she happens to be driving past a house fire she can earn her much-needed community service hours! Bingo!!!
