The astro-dweeb grew up in Los Angeles so he navigates those frightening LA Freeways with flair.
I grew up back of beyond in Australia so I am good at driving long distances, high speeds and avoiding wildlife.
When we are here together I do most of the driving – afterall I am the one who has left hand driving ingrained into my subconscious!
However, occasionally I do relinquish the wheel. But, when the astro-dweeb turned out of the car park using the wipers and veered towards the right side it was not long before I was digging my fingers into the seat and clenching my tongue between my teeth.
Eventually, in my most conversational tone, I asked "do you get scared when I am driving?"
He replied "sometimes"
Sometimes??? Well, that was unexpected!!!!!
After a few moments of silence, I sat up straighter and replied: "well, I am scared ALL the time you are driving ….."
