Just Keeping It Safe

driving

When my friend’s teenage daughter got her learner’s permit, she begged me to let her drive us to the store. Reluctantly, I agreed.

We got into my car, fastened our seat belts and she started the engine.

“Now remember,” I said, trying to stay calm, “before backing out of the driveway, be sure to check both your rear-view and side mirrors.” She adjusted the rear-view mirror slightly and did same to the side mirror. “It’s okay,” she said. “I look fine.”

It was safe, but I needed to remind my friend’s daughter the do’s and dont’s on the road.
