Not until 27.

Not until I was 27 did I drive.

Didn’t have a chance when I was a kid. I did have maybe three lessons of driver ed but there was an issue with billing and so I stopped going.

I walked everywhere.

In college I rode my bike.

I didn’t drive until I was 27 and starting student teaching.

I took the above image driving downtown the other day. Most every day I am so thankful to get in my car and drive. No walking. No getting rained on. No sweating through my clothes as I walk. I can buy as much as I want at the grocery and never fear getting it all home.

What I do miss is the processing time I had between school and home. The alone thinking time is something I miss.
