Sometimes I Just Laugh at Myself


Remember that secret I shared with you? That I am afraid to drive on the Interstate? Well that fear is so beyond ridiculous.

You see, I had only driven on the Interstate that runs through Seattle twice and it totally freaked me out because it has up to eight lanes of traffic and I was with my husband who was convinced that I was going to kill him. No lie.  It is a little overwhelming if you come from a town where the Interstate has only two lanes.

Last Friday I had to buckle down and over come my fear. I had the privilege to pick up the lovely Gabby who writes for The InMOMniac from the airport. The airport is 20 miles south of us and I had two options to get there: take the back roads or take the Interstate. Wanna guess which I decided to take?

I took the back roads and I got so dang lost in the middle of industrial Georgetown. When I saw a sign pointing towards I-5, I figured this was my chance to get over my fear once and for all.

So I started to merge onto the Interstate and once I realized that I was actually driving on the Interstate and that I was not going to kill any one, I did a little victory shout and congratulated myself for my awesomeness. You should have been there.

And I returned to Seattle on the Interstate. It was brilliant. I drove on the Interstate like I had been driving on it for years.

I'm on a roll people, what should I do next? Maybe dive off of the high board?

Well if you're going for totally daring, I'd say eat a caterpillar or something. I'll send you $1 if you do it!

I'm not laughing. I think you're very brave. :)

I've never driven on the interstate and I've never dived off the high dive. I'm not sure which I'd rather do first!
