A thousand things I have longed to say to him
threatened to tumble out of my mouth all at once.
It must have been a traffic jam,
because I still couldn’t say a thing at all.
I was so flustered by my own speechlessness that I
barely listened to him as he said,
“You’re taking driver’s ed, aren’t you?”
I gave a quick jerk of my head,
and he said, “Well… we’re driving together today.”
Oh. My. God.
How am I supposed to drive with him there?
I can barely even park—how am I supposed to DRIVE?
