Conversation Circa January 1989

Me: "I'm not afraid to drive in the snow."

Dad, instantly infuriated: "Damnit anyway! You SHOULD be afraid to drive in the snow! How long have you had your license? THREE MONTHS???"

Me: "DAAAad! I'm not an IDIOT! I drive cautiously in the snow. I look at the environment, and I feel how the car is responding, and I drive according to the conditions. FEAR would just get in the way, and keep me from making good decisions!"

Dad, begrudgingly mollified: "Humph. Well, alright. That makes sense."

Surprisingly wise for untested 16.
