Bad Idea

OK, so I have THE funniest story to tell you. One time, when was 18, I was dating this guy. He was quite a bit older than I was and very smart so... I was afraid to tell him that I didn't know how to drive... at all.

One night he called and asked me to come by for just a bit, and I talked my mom into driving me over and waiting in the car for a few minutes. When I arrived he kept asking if I wanted to watch a movie or something, but, you see, I couldn't because my mom was hiding in the back seat of the suburban, which was parked outside. I am not even kidding.

When I told him it was time for me to go, he said he would walk me out, and then he proceeded to walk me to my car and tried to get all kissy... in front of my mom, only he didn't know that.

I finally got into the car and I waited for him to go back into his little cottage, but he stood at the curb and watched me. The most hilarious part was that I didn't even have the keys and even if I had, I would not have known what to do with them because I had never driven, no, not ever. My mom was laughing soooo hard at me. She tossed me the keys and, between fits of laughter, taught me how to drive. I kept stepping really hard on the break and the whole car was jerking.

I turned right at the corner of his street, though I knew the way home was left, because I was afraid of the traffic. He was watching the whole time! Boy, was I embarrassed. We switched the second I was out of sight.

And that's why you don't try to pretend to be something you are not so that a boy will like you.
