Mom Teaches Me How To Drive
Growing up it was only my mom and me. We shared just about every second of the day with one another except when she was working and I was in school. When it was time for me to learn to drive my mom promised she would teach me. Early one Saturday morning my mom and I drove to a local park, which had a huge open parking lot. Once there she began explaining to me all of the instruments in the car, where they were and how they worked. When she was satisfied I understood everything she left the driver’s side seat and gave me the wheel. I quickly jumped in on the driver’s side and in no time we were rolling. After a few hard stops on the breaks we were driving smoothly across the lot. It was a wonderful day with the sun just coming up over the horizon, I rolled the windows down to smell the dew left from the rain the night before.
Just when I rolled my window down a giant bug flew in the car and landed on the steering wheel. Me, being afraid of anything that crawls and flies, immediately threw my hands up in the air, forgetting all about the fact that I was driving. In no time we were both screaming as the car twist and turned and swayed across the lot. My mother yelled at me to grab the steering wheel as she tried to reach for it herself but her seat-belt stopped her before she could reach it. I continued to yell and out of fear and inexperience pumping the gas as we zoomed through the lot. Oh yeah it was a ride of a lifetime. Finally out of boredom or maybe tired of my ear piercing screams the bug flew out the window, I grabbed the steering wheel and pumped the breaks about 10 feet before our car would’ve plunged into the river. Mom decided she would pay for me to learn how to drive and was more than happy to pay for my lessons. I received my drivers license and after about six months my mom got up enough courage to ride with me again.
