piratemoggy asked: Q, since I think you said you're driving now? (and I can't! So I find this interesting)
hahah noooooot quite, the saga of my driving lessons is a classic in the “Tom faffs around and cannot handle the most simple adminstrative tasks” genre. Ask in another, oh, 6 months maybe?
(I am really interested in how it might affect my tastes too. DRIVETIME ROCK 4EVA)
I’m currently learning to drive as an adult and it’s super weird. Just hearing from other people who learned later in life or are learning now, even if it’s just to say they exist, is so validating! I have so few examples of this in my life. This probably has something to do with living in Texas.
Back in High School, my English teacher asked us to choose a Jane Austen book to write a report on. A new bookstore had just opened up near my house so I went in to buy one. I approached an assistant and asked him where I could find Pride and Prejudice to which he replied, “Oh, I don’t know. I think that may be in the ‘black interest’ section.” I was livid.
