I am spending the day at home. Dad and Middle Lad are out having driving practice. Middle Lad has had his Learner's Permit for some time now, but has not done any driving lately. He has been very busy with band and school, and he and Dad both needed time to get over the last driving attempt. Dad and Middle Lad drove up to the YMCA for an errand. Upon leaving the parking lot, Middle Lad mixed up the gas pedal and the brake pedal. No damage was done to anyone or anything, but everyone was quite scared. After wiping up the seats, they drove home, and no driving has been done since.
I have yet to drive with Middle Lad. Unlike Mulligan, who happily submitted his head and neck to the whiplashing of Oldest Lad learning to drive; I have no desire to be Crash Test Pennie. Once Middle Lad has become fairly adept at driving, then like any dog hankering to spend a Sunday afternoon driving about town and country, I will leap into the car. In the meantime, I am not supposed to be allowed in Dad's car. (Like Dad's side of the Concrete Queen Bed, Dad does not like to share His Car with dogs.) I gave a small snort of feigned displeasure that Middle Lad and Dad would be going out in Dad's car, and then decided I would spend the day napping.

My Mom told me she mixed up the gas and brake pedal too. This isn't as uncommon as you would like to think! Just be patient, soon, you will be riding and having a great time!
I'm not allowed in my Dad's car either.... :(
yeah..... you better wait a little until he is a little more solid with the gas and the breaks ;o) When mom got her dl and went on her first trip, she was so happy, she confused gas and break, too, and left a well visible dent in our friends' garage door :D Happens......
Happy woofs, Jojo and sonja
