When my husband tells me that I can’t drive, I get annoyed and oftentimes it becomes a catalyst for me having a bad day. I have a Philippine driver’s license and a California driver’s license. Unfortunately, both of them are not good enough for Europe, so there is still a need for me to get the Czech Driver’s license. Since last month, I have been enrolled in a driving school to help me secure that Czech license. Although confident with my driving skills, I soon later found out that driving in Prague can be stressful and can be hair-raising at times.
When I came home from driving school one night, my little boy eagerly ran to greet me.
He asked: “Mama, can you drive?” Thinking that he was touted by his dad to ask me that question, I annoyingly replied: “Of course, mama can drive! Mama has been driving for years!”
But then he asked me again: “Can you drive in a police car?”
Now that’s another story.
