If you know me at all, you know I'm not the world's greatest driver. I distinctly remember my poor high school driving teacher, Mr. McConkey, staring at me and shaking his head as I attempted my first drive. I didn't get my license until I was in my 20s (the guy who gave me my test said he HAD to pass me since I scored just barely enough points to earn my DL, but he sure didn't want to), and I have a little habit of 'dinging' my car fairly often. I avoided parallel parking for literally years bc I am such a horrible backer-upper.
So I had to share this AMAZING parallel parking job I did downtown today! A few years ago Katie took me in hand and taught me to PP. Today I was downtown and found the one and only parking spot by the library. I gritted my teeth and voila! Glided right into the parking spot, people. You couldn't have slid a dime between my tires and the curb.
Of such small triumphs is happiness made (in my life anyways) Thank you, Teacher Katie! You could be the new Mr. McConkey!
