As a teen, my mom enrolled my sisters and I into a sewing class.
That was her way of keeping us occupied and out of trouble.
I thought it was the most uncoolest thing ever – until the teacher taught us how to make lingerie.
But that’s another story for another time (I do make kick ass panties though, just for the record!).
Anyway, if you know anything about sewing, you know it requires patience – lots and lots of patience because if you move too fast, you make errors – and me, well – my patience is a work in progress so I was always that student in the class who would press the pedal a little too hard and cause the sewing machine to go bonkers!
One day after almost tearing up her sewing machine, my poor teacher calmly told me “I hope you never learn how to drive because you’ve got a lead foot“.
I did learn how to drive.
I also learned that she was telling the truth – I do have a lead foot.
I have a warning ticket for doing 65 in a 45 zone and a speeding ticket for doing 90 in a 70 zone to prove she was right.
Those are just the two times I’ve been caught speeding.
I can’t tell you the countless times I haven’t been caught.
I’m not bragging by the way, I’m just owning up to a weakness of mine that, just like my patience, is a work in progress.
You know what else I have a weakness for?
Like the Nissan Skyline GTR R32.
