The Big One Six
Teeny is turning 16 next week. “When did that happen?” I asked her. She looked at me disparagingly. “1993, Mum!”
The first thing she will be doing is getting here Learner’s Permit. Yikes! My baby driving a car! But it’s not her I worry about (although, of course, I will worry!) it’s the other idiots on the road. And there are a lot of them! Going on my estimation, which is based on thorough, valid and rigourous research (i.e. my experience!), around 99.9% of people driving on the roads today are morons.
She asked me if I would give her a driving lesson. I told her I had a policy that I developed before she was even born. “What is it?” she asked.
“Never give driving lessons to anyone you’ve given birth to,” was my reply.
