the windy city!

Because they're giving us a free car, my company made us take a defensive driving course today. It wasn't too bad. And during our driving test, we got to see a really nice chunk of north Chicagoland. Our driving instructor even let us park and check out the lake.

And this is a public service announcement:

Important things to remember about driving!
1. AVOID BACKING as much as possible. Backing is the most dangerous thing you can do in your car. Crazy, huh?
2. Keep a following distance of 4 seconds. Interesting.
3. Keep a visibility of 15 seconds. Yay.
4. Honking is not a bad thing… honk, smile, and wave at intersections so that people will notice you. HA! As if.
5. Bah I can't remember the rest of the stuff. BUT the instructor told me I was an excellent driver… just so you know.

ooo i like your coat!
and defensive driving is a bunch of lies! how are you supposed to get anywhere if you're going 2 miles an hour and then you slow down so that you have to be 4 seconds away from somebody!! ;D you're a good driver even without defensive driving. i remember you always followed speed limit even when you were late for really important things

ahahaha ok first, you drive like a grandma so i'm sure you were the BEST driver in your group. Second, you have already been there for how long? driving their vans... so why did they wait so long on the driving class?
