“So, Mom, I learned in my driver’s ed class tonight how to parallel park… and it seems pretty easy.”
“Yeah. What’s the big deal about that, anyway? Why do people say it’s so hard?”
You thought it was easy?
“Yeah, I mean, all you do is pull the car up right beside the car in front, line up – steering wheel to door handle – and then turn the wheel all the way to the opposite way, and back up a little bit until you get to the curb, and then… etc.”
So Â you’ve done this already, first time? You did it without a hitch?
“No Mom, Â of course not! We’re not actually driving! I read it in the book… photos and everything. It’s so easy.”
I guess that just settles that.
