The DMV recommends not discussing politics while driving.

Or ever.

Kidding aside, I’ve taken my daughter’s driving lessons very seriously, and she’s a great student. (Yes, a tight turn in a vacant parking lot may have caused Tommy Tire to gently steal a kiss from Mary Median, but that was the height of excitement during an otherwise uneventful class.)

I let my little future NASCAR racer (or U.S. president) read this story before posting. She laughed, fully understanding my brand of humor. (I embellish family mishaps for cheap laughs.)

I also promised I wouldn’t poke fun at her driving anymore.

OK — definitely done now.
