AJC 2011 Itinerary 22 - ROAD TEST or BRAKE! SOPHIE! BRAKE!
When Sophie heard about our plans for traveling to Italy, she decided that she could at least handle a Vespa and zoom around with us, rather than having to walk everywhere.
Best of all: you can’t pack much luggage on a Vespa!
(There was No Way she was going to be a Pack Animal on that trip)
Sophie had been taking Secret Driving Lessons from her friend Kevin the Kiwi who works as a Driving and Road Tester for the Department of Motor Vehicles.
(He originally wanted to be a Flight Instructor, but being a small flightless bird *, that was ruled out much to his disappointment).
So other than a few minor mishaps such as getting tangled in a BLACKBERRY BUSH and confusing the ACCELERATOR with the BRAKE, Sophie got her LEARNERS and proudly Vroomed Vroomed home to show me.
(Good thing the Garage Door was OPEN at the time as I still could hear Kevin yelling: BRAKE! SOPHIE, BRAAKKKKKE!)
**the following is based on a True Story of me teaching a friend to drive again after 7 years absence behind the wheel – names changed of course to protect the guilty**
