really?


When this little postcard came in the mail the other day, I made it a point to tell Eric that I had to renew my driver's license- because I am bound to forget, and it would helpful for him to remind at some point before my birthday. What I didn't count on was his laughter. Yes, laughter- and then his comment- Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-haaaaa! You have to take the driver's test again! Ummm... excuse me? That's what it says! No, really- where? And so I read, and sure enough... it says that I will have to take the vision test and the hearing test and maybe the driving test- written and road. Does that seem fair? The answer is NO! So I thought about the prospect of these two tests. Written. Yeah, no way I can remember all of that 50 ft from this and 1200 ft from that. I would have to seriously study. Road test. Hmmmm... I think I would do great (do I hear my husband laughing again?) I am a good driver... no accidents! But I would definitely be nervous... how nervous? Nervous enough to possibly fail. Would they really take my license away from me? Maybe I could just forget that I got that post card... conveniently lose it? I suppose my hubby would turn me in... possibly himself. So now my options are these: go early, and find out if I really have to take all of those tests, and maybe have time to study? or wait until the last minute (my birthday!) and wing it. Neither option sounds very promising...

Ummmm this is scary...perhaps you and Laura could study together. Or you could take one of those private courses and drive the car with the big huge neon side on the top: "student driver"
Geeze...wonder why you have to take it?
I suppose Eric could have pulled a few strings..Ya think???

That sounds great Suz- me & Laura studying away together. Yup, because me helping her with homework has always been so much fun... I'm thinking the neon sign is sounding pretty good!

I can NOT believe you have to retake the test. That sounds crazy! I don't think PA does this. Thank goodness : )!
