Princess had failed her driver’s test the first time around, and she wasn’t feeling a whole lot better the second time around. She had screwed up royally the first time, making a right turn on a red light where it was specifically posted “No Turn On Red.” She wasn’t sure if it was nerves, or the fact that the sign had been mostly obscured by tree branches, but either way, she hadn’t even made it around the block. Did you know that when you disobey a traffic sign, they don’t even let you finish the end of the test? They just direct you back to the parking lot of the DMV, which in Princess’ case was only half a block behind her. Today was her second time attempting to pass, and she really didn’t want to have to come back again for a third time. Confidence was not her strong point, and neither, it seemed, was driving.
