Driving Miss Millie

05 January 2011

Today I took our wee little car Millie on the road for the very first time. First off, I remembered to get into the right side of the car. It really is the small victories. I did however reach for the seat belt on the wrong side. I drove around the campus, where there were few cars on the road and a low speed limit. It was not too bad. I think driving on the wrong side of the road helps when you are sitting on the wrong side of the car.

After some time driving around the campus, it was time to hit the streets. I had gotten quite used to our extended mini van and it’s mirrors that are the size of my head. Mini Me Millie has mirrors the size of a tiny hand. It is a little scary adjusting to doing everything on the wrong side with tiny mirrors to keep track of all the other traffic. I drove to the hair salon through my very first round-a-bout. I have to say that it was not too bad. I am learning that I could drive around the round-a-bout all day if I wanted or at least until I keep secure to turn out of the round-a-bout.

I was very impressed with my self for my first attempt driving. I did have a great role model. Andrew , ignoring all fears, has been driving since the first day we got the car. He jumped in with both feet. We really had no choice. But, He has done a wonderful job driving and has been an inspiration. I know that in no time I will be driving in more traffic and eventually hitting the M5 motorway.
