“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

D17, this is the *crack of dawn* shining on you as you leaped behind the steering wheel of Dad's little car ridiculously early this morning:
these are the three text messages you ecstatically sent me straight after your drive around the block with The Driving Licence Man:
Try 91 percent!
And he didn't even get me to do a parallel park!

"don't thank me, it's your driving"

this is the look on your face when the boys'n'i met you back at the car:
(please note: cool funky nike glasses, to be worn whenever you're behind the wheel, ok)

and this is your very own map of The Sunny Bay that i gotcha, cos like me, you're all at sea when it comes to directions:
yep, another Special Plate Moment, although i'm not sure you're home for dinner, cos the first words you said to me were, "mum, i'm gonna need the car tonight..."

Congrats! No holding him back now (perhaps time for a GPS tracking system?). Cute boy + car = chick magnet (how flash am I? Maths and science in one sentence). And what a great test result! Mine was a *shocker*, I still remember it to this day, only passed because the man took pity on me.

Remember - petrol is expensive but if you can keep your speed down you won't waste your money on fines !
