Okay, my sister let me drive her car today, and
I reversed it, drove it and used the gas pedal a little. It was so much fun. I'm training for my Temps basically. But I do have a hard time turning it. So I'm practicing on that. My sister is all "Becci, if you press that gas pedal, and not the brakes, we will crash and die, and if we don't die, I'll end up killing you." So she scared me a little. XDD

When was the first time yo ever drived?

Congrats on your first drive! The first time I drove was right around my 16th birthday. Don't remember much about it except that it was in an empty parking lot where I would have to really try to hit the few lamp posts that were there.

Aw this ruined my day:

There were kittens that were born 3 days ago, and I guess over night three out of the six fell out of the box, and the fall didn't kill them, it was the cold. They went into the rigimortis stage, they were hardened into the cute cuddled up look together. It's so sad, then when the mommie found htem, she tried to revive them by licking them asnd failed. It was so sad!
So we buried them and such. Iy's really sad.

Sorry to hear about the kittens; I've heard stories like that before Crying or Very sad

As for the driving, my first time was also in a parking lot which was great fun! Now it's just routine anymore.

I can't remember how old I was when I first drone. It was on a gravel road and I was just steering while my dad used the pedals. I think the first time when I was old enough to reach the pedals might have been around 14 and driving a clutch on a gravel road. And before I went to get my permit I practiced parallel parking in a parking lot but I also took a driver's ed class in highschool the got me some road time and interstate practice.

I first drived at 17 and I was really nervous. It was in a cemetary and I almost drove over a tombstone.

I still have awhile before I drive, but my parents have been saying that they're going to let me drive a tiny bit before my 16th birthday in empty parking lots where I can't hit anyone. Laughing

Lucky. Razz My parents are good, nice, obeying people who wouldn't let me drive even a little bit before I'm legally allowed to.

Here we go again. Rolling Eyes

As for driving, my first time was on a long, straight highway when I was about 14 in my dad's dually. Scared me to death...but it was fun! Smile

Darth Judicar, do you not have permits? Or are we talking strictly driving alone?

Well congrats on the first drive Smile My first time behind the wheel was when I was 12. I had a lawn mowing business and my parents drove me from house to house (my regular clients). They weren't home so I grabbed the spare key to my mom's car and drove it on my own. I nearly killed myself doing it, but at least I got where I was going and got the job done lol
