Keys to the Highway

My little sister, who we’ve seen many times before, is sixteen. Holy crap. I have no words to describe how thoroughly this weirds me out.

I still think that it’s only been a few years since *I* learned to drive, which is, of course, wildly inaccurate. So to think that my baby sister, eleven years my junior, is now old enough to be routinely driving my mom around…. Well, that’s just crazy.

Not that I’m worried about her. She’s smart, responsible, and probably more nervous about driving than I was, since I had the luxury of driving around in a old (but small) car while she has to learn to parallel park in my Mom’s SUV. (Parallel parking that thing makes ME nervous!!) Anyway, I know she’ll be fine. Hell, the biggest thing she needs to worry about is having to play chauffeur on the frequent trips between Saskatoon and Regina while Mom takes business calls.

So, enjoy the freedom of the road, little sis. And never forget to crank Tom Petty’s “Runnin’ Down a Dream” whenever it comes on the radio – it’s the ultimate driving song!!

    Let’s see…how many years until she’s not jail bait? And don’t ask Jennie that cause she’d say forever or is that just for her baby sister?

    And excellent taste in road music – “Running down a dream” is one of the truly ultimate road songs 🙂

    I prefer Sammy Hagar’s “I Can’t Drive 55” or Judas Priest’s “Turbo Lover” myself. 🙂
