So I'm finally going to take my learner's permit test at the DMV tomorrow morning. For a middle-aged non-driver from New York, this feels akin to planning to sneak past the Wall during the Cold War. You could say I'm feeling extremely anxious about this test, and you'd be dead right.
I got a shiny new DMV booklet from the public library and am now making my way through its grim pages. So many terrible things that can happen when you're driving! So much to think about when you're entering a roundabout! (Not to mention getting Yes's cloying "Roundabout" song stuck in your head, which is almost as worrisome.) But I swear to Joan Borucki (DMV's director) and all my other fellow Californians that I will try my level best tomorrow.
And now ... back to the dang booklet. ...
