On driving

I drove on the highway. And I drove on the highway in the dark.

But can I drive over a bridge? And through a tunnel? At night???

After a long bus ride???

Can I drive somewhere new? That is tricky to get to? And that is not Serach and Ezzie's apartment? Somewhere I can't visualize in my head?

I want to and I don't want to.


Excessive amounts of moral support are most welcome because, kinda, I'm, uh, terrified of this prospect.

I got totally lost leaving SerandEz's apt on a rainy motzei shabbat a year ago -- getting there was fine...but I got SOOOO lost on the way to where I was staying. Plus, we changed the clock that night AND I had a wedding the next day (4 hours later I needed to start driving).

Good luck! :-D

Note that Jameel is also Israeli now, so he's handicapped when it comes to driving and directions. :)

Anyway, see the sign that should be on your wall!? YOU CAN DO IT!!

The opening line sounded like a Dr. Seuss book...

I hate ta break it to you, but Queens is not meant for people who don't like getting lost. Driving somewhere else should be a dream.

Plus - bridges are sooo fun. Tunnels a bit claustrophobic, but you get used to them, and it begins to feel like one of those racing car video games.

You can so totally do this! Bridges and tunnels are usually lit anyway, so day or night shouldn't make a difference. You're going to be totally fine, dear.

Yup, I'm with badfor, here.
Can you drive it in a box? Can you drive it with a fox?
