A Story...

Okay, so I will finally admit that I'm not a great driver. I don't really enjoy it anyway. I do it a lot, especially during baseball season as we head to away games, but I get over it. I'm horrible with directions, and have been known to get lost - horribly lost - more times than I can count. Kelly keeps promising to get me a GPS, but as of now, my dashboard is empty.

What I really don't like, though, is driving with another adult in the car. I get nervous. After driving for 16 years you'd think I'd be okay.... but no. That said, I have a little story, and it goes like this:

One day, a beautiful young maiden was driving to work. She had just attended spin class and was feeling good. She was making the short drive from the wellness facility to her office on campus. She got a little distracted however, when she noticed the car in front of her. She saw that it was her co-worker and was just pondering the thought that he was in front of her. (The maiden, being so young & beautiful had to have at least one little fault, and that fault just happened to be that she didn't always pay attention. Trivial, really). In order for her to enter the faculty/staff parking lot, the maiden had to roll down her window and swipe her card so the gate would raise. And she did all of these things. About the time that the gate was to go up, she realized that her co-worker didn't turn into the parking lot. She turned her lovely face to see where he went, and when she didn't see his car, she proceeded forward into the parking lot. Alas, the gate never went up (the card-swipe thingy can be quite tempermental) and the young maiden drove right into it. It scraped the front bumper, the hood of her car and finally smashed into her windshield. The maiden backed up, the gate went up and she pulled into the parking lot. After she assessed the damage to her vehicle and called to report the damage to the gate, she went to work. Fortunately, the young maiden wasn't really a maiden, as she was happily married to a prince of a guy but liked to refer to herself as a maiden, and her prince reassured his love for her. Despite years of damage to the various vehicles they've shared.

...They will live happily ever after, just as soon as they find a way to buy the prince a new truck.
