Driving in cars...


One of my bosses dropped me home yesterday and he drives one of those mid-life cars its black and low to the ground and only has two doors and you have to move the front seat to sit in the back and by the time I got out of it my heart was in my throat he drove like we were on a speedway and I know people might think I exaggerate but I hate fast driving I am more of a driving miss Daisy kind of passenger stay under 40 and I am a happy girl most of my friends and my DH knows this about me and its a running joke but I don't care and my boss must have thought that that kind of driving might impress me but it doesn't and I was too chicken to tell him.

I don't have my license and I may never get it I may need therapy for this but cars make me nervous I have been in 2 serious accidents one a drunk driver hit us head on its not nice to see headlights coming at you full on and you can't do anything but brace for impact and the other a taxi I was in blew out a tire and we ended up upside down in a ditch and even though I was not hurt physically the damage is more internal accidents happen so suddenly but I believe speed contributes to it most times so I can't stand fast driving I break out in cold sweat and can't breath.

Yes, accidents are bad, but once the bug gets you, there is nothing else like it. Back when I lived in Cali it was so fun to take on the mountain roads and the coast roads. The one thing to remember when driving is this, you drive as safe as you can but always watch out for others, as they may just be idiots.

I hear you Eban I will conquer this one day I know that I am missing out by not driving and my son hates to go anywhere with me because I don't drive and he hates to walk.

Everybody in Trinidad drives super fast I find.

I was going with a pilot to the airport one morning early o'clock. It dark, the road wet cause it was raining and the fella (friend of a friend) was driving like he was driving a plane! My heart was in my mouth and I just said to myself 'we are going to flip over'. But we didnt, thankfully.

With the driving thing, go with an instructor, not your husband (if he drives). And tell him to go at your speed. And if he is not nice to you, fire him and get another instructor.

With the belly after a 9lb baby thing, find a Pilates class. It works (if the teacher is good)

I like the speed but I find that I only drive hard when I'm alone. As soon as a passenger steps in you would call me grandpa.
