Hey everyone –
My daughter can drive now.
Like all by herself.
On the roads
YOU drive on
I think you know where this is going.
She was a baby who stretched her arms with her elbows bent
She wore sleepers and sleep sacks and slept in my arms for most of her babyhood
She was a toddler who called grapes “erdeps” and loved mud puddles
She watched Elmo over and over and changed her clothes 5 times a day in preschool –
always with a turn in the snow white dress
This was just yesterday, friends
And tomorrow she will be off to college
Metaphorically tomorrow –
Geez – I have more time than that.
So I have a request
That. Means. YOU.
It’s simple really.
Get off the road if you can
I mean do you really need to drive?
And if you must drive, do it safely
Obviously don’t drink or text or try to put your mascara on
Be safe and kind or stay home.
