Last night was my last night of drivers ed! I was sure I was going to flunk the written test which consisted of 50 questions. There were multiple choice, true and false, and fill in the blank questions. If you missed more than 12 then you could either retake it that night or come back Saturday morning. I, thankfully, missed only 2 and got a 96%...I was quite thrilled! I start my driving time with the instructor tomorrow morning and then have it again on Monday and Thursday. The last steps to getting my license will be getting the rest of my 50 hrs. and taking the driving test. The drivers ed teacher is a funny old guy with funny little sayings or mispronunciations so I wrote some of them down-
1. Onced a year (once a year)
2. Twiced a year (twice a year)
3. Acme (acne)
4. Poosh (push)
5. Warsh (wash)
6. Pasger (passenger)
7. "...call mom up and say guess who got squarshed (squashed) on Wagner."
8. "Ol' Rick knew..." (him referring to himself when he was young)
Last night we also had to watch the "gory driving video" in class which I very rarely looked up and wished I hadn't. I had really freaky dreams because of it and kept waking up through the night. Well around 5:30am I felt my bed start shaking violently and the first thing that ran through my head was that Jesus was coming back (I decided that when Jesus comes back it would definitely be loud enough to wake my brother up). Then, I thought that maybe the dryer was on (sometimes it would shake out beds and desks even though Morgan and I's bedroom is upstairs at the opposite side of the house) but then decided mom wouldn't be doing laundry that early, my final thought was earthquake. I've never felt on before but I was pretty sure that was what it was so I go,
"Morgan are you awake? Did you feel that?"
She responds "It was probably just thunder."
My logic kicks in and I precede to tell her that it's not raining and the moon is out bright.
Morgan then tells me, "It's just a freight train."
More logic...we don't live near railroad tracks.
I tell her, "No I'm pretty sure we just had an earthquake."
Come morning I found out that she knew it was an earthquake but didn't want to freak me out further. The news said we could feel tremors from it all day...kinda creepy.
