We left at 8:15 this morning to drive through rush hour traffic to go to the DMV testing center. The weather was astounding; pounding rain and in the 50’s after days when everything was frozen solid and not even 10 degrees. We drove through it together, my hands on the steering wheel, his hands clutching the laptop on which the driver’s manual was displayed.
Neither one of us slept much last night for whatever reason.
When I tried to make conversation he said, eyes on the computer screen, “Shhhhh, stop” and so I just reached over and patted his shoulder with a laugh. I’m glad he’s safe and comfortable enough with me to be true.
We arrived 15 minutes before the doors would be unlocked and Dave thought it was just way too long of a wait. He was nervous.
Just as I knew he would, he passed easily.
“That was incredibly nerve wracking.”
“My hands were shaking the whole time.”
“Okay now I gotta do my History homework.”
And that’s what he did.
We also got Dunkin Donuts coffees and listened to music.
Me and my buddy Dave. How I love him.
I dropped him off at school and then got groceries…and very wet…..came home, and crashed on the couch. I didn’t do a thing for the past 2 hours but watch TV and snooze with a cat on my lap.
When Caleb got home from school, he joined us.
This is the view from here.
Happy Thursday, friends.
