Hi! It’s me! Lily!
Beth is still in trouble – kinda. Dave and Sabby seem to have calmed down enough to realize that that’s what happens when teenagers are learning to drive, and at least it wasn’t another car she hit. Beth’s a little skittish about driving again, but she needs the practice. I’m not sure how they’re going to resolve it, but I guess we’ll find out.
Dave did apologize to both Beth and me for his comment about how I’d never do that. It wasn’t fair to either of us – it just turned Beth against him and against me too. It hurt Beth. I could tell. But there’s nothing Dave can do but apologize – and never do it again.
But now they’re talking a lot more seriously about getting Beth her own car. So we’ll see how that shakes out.
The driveway is getting crowded!!!
So I guess that crisis is mostly averted. For now, anyway.
Why didn’t I crash when I was learning? I don’t know. Maybe I was lucky. Maybe I’m just a little more cautious. Maybe I had a little more practice. Maybe my martial arts training that I can’t remember gave me good reflexes. And who knows. I guess it’s still possible. Hasn’t happened yet, though. Which, considering how bad Texas drivers are, is at least a little surprising…
I’m tired and Marie needs a walk. It’s a little chilly tonight.
