"Thus are the changes wrought in a man's life - that courage is treasured more than comfort and, in that choice, victory is gained."
The first time hubby asked me to drive his Vespa, he took me to a roundabout and nearly got us both killed. I wouldn't take to the driver's seat for years after that.
But I've been bothered by the fact that I didn't get back on the proverbial horse...and yesterday was my day to do it.
This is my first official Vespa lesson - in a parking lot this time - and after thirty minutes of training, I was already speeding up to 40 km/hr and stopping short, zig-zagging around apples he'd strategically placed in the street. My ultimate goal is to fly around town in a little summer skirt and sandals ... dreaming of Rome and other "exotic" cities that speak to a Vespa-paradise. (Let me have my fantasy, people!).
Courage, did you say? I'll post again the day I get my license!
