Yesterday I learned a very important lesson...

I am a terrible stunt driver. As I was headed to work at 30 mph, I hit an icy patch and lost control of my little 1995 Cavalier. I slid and slid and slid, finally deliberately spinning the car in circles to avoid oncoming traffic. Luckily, I didn't hit any mailboxes or other cars, and I was able to retrieve my car from the clutches of the snow-filled ditch (which was a lucky thing since my AAA membership had lapsed a while ago). Oh, and yeah, I'm fine too. But when faced with another drive in 18" of snow today, I opted out. I guess it's true that you do learn some things as you get older.
