More Driving

1975: AMC, a car manufacturer now defunct, came out with a car called the Pacer. Some called its design- the rounded top that was a glass bubble –  futuristic, many called it ugly. I fell in love with its unusual design  and decided to buy one. Problem: the only two Pacers available at area dealers were standard shift. I had never driven a standard shift, so I called a local driving school, took two lessons, and headed to the dealership to take possession of my beautiful, unique, blue Pacer.

The salesman knew about my two lessons on standard shift, so after he handed me the keys, he said, “You won’t mind if I don’t watch you drive out of the showroom, will you?”

What to say? I love my family and friends. I also love kids, cats, and books. Oh, and potato chips and Cheez-its. I am a retired teacher who still loves to be in the classroom, so now I am a substitute teacher.
