Life with Suzie – the bends

My daughter had only just recently received her drivers licence and we were travelling home from work one evening.

She was driving, very sedately up Circular drive. Everything was going well as we turned right into Bordeaux Avenue. Then as we approached S-bend she accelerated, swung the steering wheel into the right turn, a quick left and then she accelerated out of the bend.

I was plastered back in my seat, by now in a cold sweat and thankful I was still alive.

Before I could say a thing she looked at me with a big grin and a gleam in her eyes and said, “Mom says you should never waste a good corner”.

Mmmmmmmm….what could I say.

LOL. I can relate. When my daughter was first getting her driver's licence, she hit a patch of ice and did a perfect doughnut. I saw the world whizzing past me...

BTW, my mother was born in South Africa, and lived in Cape Town and Port Elizabeth.

I took at least the firs three of our six kids for the first drive around the block. Scary that is! So scary that DH got the privilege with the younger ones.

Nice post, great humor.

My daughter was always collecting the bills of too fast driving when she was behind the steering wheel and I was sitting in the back.:-)
