Still, you could have read it as "prehensile dementia".
Probably a combination of middle aged eyesight and one-track mindedness.

I am one great big lump of 'pissed-off-ness' and 'fed-up-ness', fed up with the system, with certain people whose behaviour has been nothing less than shocking and fed up with a very long, drawn out and traumatic situation.

As I said, one big fat lump of pissed-off-ness of uber proportions.

Anyway, it's been nice knowing you. Can I have your drums?
Sorry matey. No drums for you just yet.

At one point during the lesson I think we achieved a top speed of 12 mph. Scary stuff.

Yep. I taught the boy how to drive a couple of years ago. Initially, he was a real boot down merchant which needed a bit of discussion. Fine now I believe....... or I'm just happy with my head in the sand.

You probably should be so sad you made it through the lesson though!

All the way up to 12? Please tell me that wasn't on one of those 45mph main streets

Yep. It was the parking lot as well. Bit of a strop about that at first but we soon got over it.

Parking Lot. We had an initial adjustment of first lesson expectations. Can't have been too bad as she wants to go out again tonight - I now understand how a condemned man must feel.
