Before we hit the open road, Hannah took the test to get her learner’s permit. That’s “temps” for you Wisconsinites.
She passed with flying colors, except for one thing:
This is how it went:
DMV employee reading Hannah’s application (let’s call her Darla Marie Vankemp): Eye color: aqua-marine? Aqua-marine is not an appropriate answer for eye color. What color are your eyes?
Hannah (respectfully): Aqua-Marine.
Darla M.V.: I cannot put aqua-marine on your application. What color are your eyes?
Hannah: What are my options?
Darla: Blue, brown, green, and hazel.
Hannah (with a conciliatory sigh): Blue.
Darla (reading): Hmm…hair, mocha?
She stares at Hannah, picks up her pen, scratches out mocha.
Darla: Hair: brown!
Personally, we think aqua-marine and mocha are more accurate.
Besides hair and eye color, Hannah only got one other answer wrong, so now she can do this all around the country:
and her mother can do this all around the country:
Don’t talk and drive!
Ten and two!
Check your mirrors!
Did you just blink?! Eyes. on. the. road. every second!
Well done, Hannah! Well done.
