Baby You Can Drive My Car
Jackson's planets finally decided to do the right thing and align themselves in a positive way. Murphy's Law was suspended and the Powers That Be must've taken a holiday because Jackson FINALLY took the driving test. David picked up the car and took him to DMV - while waiting he said to the counter person (who apparently was not taken out back and beaten to death previously for misinformation) that they must've changed the rules again. The counter person said "No, they changed the rules for YOU" - David wisely decided to drop the subject. Jackson was a bit nervous but got a nice tester, you can parallel park 3 times - he got it on the 2nd try and he even remembered where the hazard light was! So, needless to say when I got home from work we all got to stand around to admire the Spanking New Driver's License which Jackson will show you on request. He was very happy after all the false runs he's made at the DMV for the past two weeks and it's just in time for the last day of summer school and the subsequent vacation to Aunt Janet and Aunt Diane's (he was determined to have a license to show them before he left!). So it all ended quite well with the exception of the fact I now have to alert the insurance company who will gladly raise my rates. Sigh. In other news - there was a news story this morning that had me in gales of laughter, I couldn't stop. Apparently there's a cat in a facility that can tell when a resident is going to croak in the next 2 to 4 hours AND WILL GO SIT ON THIER BED UNTIL THEY DO SO. The staff was yammering on and on about how he's done this 25 times and he was Team Member but all I could think of - can you imagine laying in your bed and that morbid cat walking around scoping you out? I would be like COULD SOMEONE GET THIS DAMN CAT OFF MY BED - NOW! What if you didn't like your roommate - could you give them a Friskies Rub Down or hide cat treats under thier pillow as a joke? I started crying I was laughing so hard - that's nurse humor for you.
