Learning things along the way!

Bumpy Ride (Part 2)

Last week I wrote about how desperate were I lately to drive a car and finally I got my wish today! 🙂


My father took us to a ground where many amateurs were driving cars and some children were playing cricket (The ground was big enough). My father asked us three (siblings) as to who wanted to go first and I took the chance! As soon as I sat on the driving seat and placed my leg on accelator, I accelerated the car way too fast and my father had to control the steering for me and he soon ordered me to go back to the back seat! I went and my brother got the next chance. He drove the car very well And I got extremely jealous. 😦 I know he’s my younger brother and I shouldn’t be jealous of him but I couldn’t help it! But luckily that jealous feeling was just temporary and I got my chance again! I asked my father to give me one more chance with the promise that I won’t accelerate the car more than it is necessary. He agreed and once again I took the driving seat! This time I didn’t accelerate the car and got some 2-3 rounds covering the half ground. But this time I did the stupid mistake of pressing the brakes way too hard and learnt my lesson that women can rarely be good drivers! I hope I can be one of those rare ladies after a couple of lessons! I really hope so! 🙂

On the tick of a clock!

Daily Prompt: The Clock

Write about anything you’d like. Somewhere in your post, include the sentence, “I heard the car door slam, and immediately looked at the clock.”

My Parents had been out to the grocery store and my siblings had been to school and university. I was home alone as I had no classes today. A day before I had decided to use the day off for completing the due work I had managed to pile up over the last week. Physics numericals, Statistics practical, history notes and maths problems which were hanging on my head were supposed to be done that day. But, I also had a blog to write, Internet to surf and use the Wi-fi my parents had paid for at the beginning of the month! ( I cannot waste that 😉 ) So, Like a good kid I asked my my mother if I can check my wordpress stats and facebook newsfeed just before she left, merely for 10 minutes and then I’ll complete my homework and also the chores that she had told me to complete. As soon as their car left the parking lot, I jumped to the chair and switched on the computer. I did indeed check the newsfeed and stats after which I got distracted from all my tasks and just listened to some music, played some childish games, checked newsfeed ans stats again, and again, and again! I didn’t relize how much time has passed when suddenly I heard the car door slam, and immediately looked at the clock. Oh Gosh! It had been an hour and a half since my parents left and it must be them! I rushed like a maniac doing the chores like placing the utensils into the cabinets and collecting the dried clothes from the balcony! As I looked down from the balcony I didn’t see our car but the neighbours car and I realized that my Parent’s hadn’t returned yet! but Thank God! At least I was done with the chores, I went into the room, swithched of the computer and went to my study table. All the subjects were waiting to be studied! 😦
