Galesaur’s Guide to Success:
1) Fear the idea of captaining a potential killing vehicle through youth and early adulthood (approximately 23 people-years).
2) Move to NYC, postponing the need for any auto operation skills.
3) Upon later relocation, realize that not all places are as public-transit-equipped as The City, though Ann Arbor certainly tries.
4) Study hard, obtain driver’s license forged from blood/sweat/tears!
5) Get back on bike, reveling in the knowledge that you could be driving.
Seriously, though, I’m pretty psyched by the idea that I can go on road trips and star in action movies and stuff!
Big news, gang – I’ve finally obtained that little slip of paper telling me I’m eligible to learn how to drive in a real-life car (attended by a real-life adult), and my darling cousin (the eerily observant reader might remember her from last Thanksgiving) has volunteered to show me the ropes! So if you happen to be a small child wandering through Ann Arbor… well, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Looking ahead: next week’s comic might be a few hours delayed, but rest assured it will be an exciting (or at least unusual) one. Some of my Thai relatives are visiting the States, and I’ll be seeing them for the first time in about eight years!
And finally, in Patbird news: homework homework homework, making new friends, reading, homework? Don’t worry, there will be much Patbird in the comics to come. Patbird to the max.
Until next time!
