things aren't so bad...


Today I practiced parking with my friend Lori, and I got honked at. (I fear being honked at but it's alright, I know they do it because I'm probably driving bad.) And I continue to feel like there is no reason for me to not get my license. And, per Dennis being grumpy, I did call and complain about not being shown certain things with my driving instructor. I was aggressive and stuck up for myself when the guy on the phone tried to use that tactic where he talks alot and tries to make you feel like an idiot, and I ended up getting a free hour. So Dennis is happy that I complained and I get a free hour to practice parking. missions accomplished. (just be nice to people you honk at!)

Do you know, we have been approached in the past 3 and a half years by at least 5 teenagers to buy them beer? Dennis says "are you kidding me? I watch investigative reports on the news! I know this could be a set up!" (So his rationalization for not buying someone underage alcohol is that he could get in trouble himself, nice to know he's not altruistic.) But I think that this would be my reasoning too, if personally approached. I can say that I had alcohol before my 21st birthday, illegally, but it doesn't mean that I would buy an 18 year old a beer. Dude, it's kind of overrated and I think you can wait...

LMAO @ Dennis' reasonings for not buying underage kids beer.

Good luck with your parking - the only parking I had problems with was street parking - I couldn't get close enough to the edge because I was afraid of driving up on to the curb. After awhile when you've done it enough, you just start ramming your car into parking spots...lol
