In the great state of Ohio, we get our driver's license's at the standard age of 16.
By the time I hit 16, I'd been driving a riding lawn mower for a good 4 years. Yes, laugh at that mental image. I'm a corn-fed farm girl.
One cold, December day, my dad forced me to go take my test. I bawled the entire fifteen-minute drive. I was scared to death. Why? I did not want to be responsible for injuring someone in an accident, ever. That redhead forced me to get my license.
Of course I passed with flying colors, but how many 16-year-old's do you know who have to be forced to get their license and then cry the entire way?
