Driving in the ol’ car o’ life

So I won the prestigious Mario Andretti award in high school.

That has sat with me for years. A mixture of pride that really I was that gnarly of a driver and a bit of shame that I apparently deserved that award and not the one for service or academic excellence.

So, yeah. Lots of stuff to sift through over the years. But this morning, here’s what I’m pondering:

Another girl’s driving was compared to Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride.

I got the Mario Andretti award.

And you know what? I think there’s something kinda cool in there.

Owning that I am fast and furious at times (with age this is a much tempered trait). Owning that I can be intense, hyper focused, competitive and risk taking.

What kind of car o’ life do you drive?


And, more importantly, what kind of driver are you?
