Yesterday afternoon I was driving back from the dump with my oldest son, Daniel. Daniel is 17 and will be 18 in a few months. He has been driving for almost 2 years. Two years of early morning seminary (5:50 am). Two years of shuttling between high school campus and college campus, and two years of being mom's back up taxi. Yesterday I began to wonder if this is all really a good idea having him drive. It all started like this.......
Mom: Daniel, the windows are getting foggy from all this talking (see it is winter here so it is dark by 4 pm) I am going to have to turn on the defrost.
Mom: You know, the defrost button, it clears the windows so you can see.
Daniel: You're kidding right? There is an actually a button that can do that?
Mom: You're kidding right? You did not know about the defrost button?
Daniel: If I did know I would not have been driving with my head hanging out the window so I can see. Sheesh.
Okay boys and girls, here is what we learned......
First: If you notice your windows are fogging up press the magic button that clears the windows so you can actually see where you are going.
DO NOT....I repeat.....DO NOT DO THIS!!!
Especially if it is 24 degrees out side with out the fact you are driving 30 mph down the road. Apparently tears freeze at that temperature.
But no worries, there were no witness because he had on the high beams on as well because it was foggy out. Yes, I showed him were the fog light buttons were as well on the dashboard.
To all the drivers that had to witness this spectacle I apologize profusely on behalf of my son.
At least I got a good laugh out of it. Hope you did too.
