It's TRUE I've had lots of vehicle accidents in my life.It is True!
But I never should had told my wife of them, ....not even of a few.
I think it's one thing I've told her which she actually DOES remember.
So, now that I am often our driver, I hear from January to December.....
....about how SHE has NEVER had a vehicle accident.Can we believe IT?
I'd better not accuse her of lying, or she may start calling me a S h i t.
OK!It's true, so true, about my accidents, but I've had none for years.
I've not had one since I met my mate, so she's never seen me with tears....
like so often happened back in New York State, before I sold my last car.
I didn't need a car anymore, 'cause after retiring I almost never went far....
....from home, and if I did I could take a bus, or even rent a car for sure.
But it's true that now, as I've done before, as I drive, my mind's at times a blur.
OR my mind's on other [more important] things, though often 'on our way',
like "What's that bird? " or "My, that girl's pretty! "What the Hell can I say? !
I AM a good driver, no matter what 'she' says, but, yes, I could be (much)better.
But should it really be necessary to stop for a traffic light as it gets REDDER?
And do I always have to take the correct exit, or drive at the posted speed?
Ok!I admit that maybe, for safety's sake, a Guardian Angel-passenger I do need.
Thank You, dear Wife! ! !
