My First Driving Lesson This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   One Saturday afternoon, I sat on my bed waiting for my dad to give me my first driving lesson. I was very nervous and scared to drive on a real road, with real drivers. My dad honked the horn. I ran downstairs and jumped into the car. My dad drove me to an empty parking lot.

My dad told me to get in the driver's seat. I was so nervous that I thought I was going to throw up.

Finally we were ready to start. My dad told me to put the car in drive, but by accident I put in reverse. I almost hit a tree, but somehow I managed to get out of that situation.

I thought the day would never end. Finally my dad told me to put the car in park. He gave me a big kiss and said, "You need a lot more practice." n
