Jesus Take The Wheel

For those of you keeping tabs, (in my mind there are lots) I completed number 4 on my "21 Before 21" list today!  I got my full licence!  Huzzah!  

Mom, in trying to boost my spirits told me before we left, 
"Don't worry, other people will see you and give you a break while you're taking the test.  When I'm driving I can see when there's a stupid ass on the road and give them lots of room."

"Stupid Ass?! THAT is the type of encouragement you are giving me!".. Thanks for the support Mom.  

I was so nervous that by the time I finished, my leg was shaking and barely putting pressure on the brake.. BUT he (the very rigid looking man) turned out to be a a softy and cut me some slack.

Now I am free to roam wherever I'd like with Swarley.. I'm sure there are some good adventures ahead of us!


  1. Hahahahahahaha. I can totally picture your mom saying that too. So glad that you got your license though, I knew you could do it!


  2. Haha congratulations! I remember my driver's test... the tester did not pay any attention to anything that I did but instead took it upon himself to point out nice cars on the road and tell me how he one day hopes to own a luxury car limo service.

    Also, my mom told me that I should have been born a natural blonde. Moms are the best.

  3. When I moved to Alaska I had to re-take my drivers test even though I had been driving for almost 9 years and had actually driven HERE by myself! I was so terrified I was going to fail, because how embarrassing would that be?!? Congratulations on passing!

  4. Thank you all for the congratulations!

  5. Congrats! I am 25 and I don't have a licence! I don't even know how to drive! It's on my 30 before 30 list, which I will post soon!
