An odd series of events

9:00am -
Evan tells Hubby about job woes in car on way to counselor

10:30am -
Hubby has "serious talk" with Evan about job in car on way home

11:00am -
Evan decides he must have new job, discovers (I don't know how) that an electronics company is hiring for manufacturing. It is good money and does not require dealing with people.

11:15am -
Auntie (me) explains to Evan that though she will give occassional rides to new job, she cannot be counted on for regular transportation.

11:30 am -
Evan decides after months of procrastination that today he is ready to take written test for his driver's license NOW. Walks to court house and comes back to say the license place is moved, will I please drive him to new location?

1:00 pm
Evan takes and passes written test.

2:00-3:30 pm
Evan and Auntie drive around on country roads. Everything goes well. We didn't even scare the cows.

I tried to teach Carl to drive. I made him drive for a total of 2 hours in parking lots and after 10 minutes in the road I knew there was no way I could teach him and live through it.

But I think I can teach Evan. I do. I hope.

Like I said, we didn't scare the cows.

  1. You are so brave!

    I tried to teach FosterEema to drive. She was 25 years old at the time, and had never driven because she always lived in a big city where there was good public transportation.

    We didn't scare any cows, but FosterEema did manage to terrify me. After one or two attempts at driving on empty country back roads, I gave up and left the teaching to a professional driving school.
