It is not as easy as it seems.
Easy probably isn't the right word. I never thought this would be easy but yet I continue to be surprised by how hard it can be.
The first time I got in the drivers seat on our trip, I didn't make it 20 yards before he was correcting my driving.
"Are you going to turn on your blinker?"
"Yes, I was getting to it! I haven't even been driving for a minute and you're already telling me how to drive!" Yes, I was snippy and nevermind that I would have forgotten to turn on the blinker.
I realized at this point what I was going to have to do... let him tell me how to drive. *gasp, shock, stunned silence*
"Slow down, there's ice on the road."
No, you don't say. "I know there's ice on the road."
"Well, you need to slow down."
"Okay, I will slow down."
I then received a lesson on how to drive on icy roads.
FYI, we have lived in an area that has snow on the ground -for five to six months out of the year- for seven years now.
Do you know just how hard it was to keep my mouth shut and listen to him?! It wasn't easy, but I did it. I just listened and did what Master said.
And I have to say, it was much easier to obey than it would have been to rip his head off... much less clean up too.
