Not a Wheel Man

I really admire people with driving skills... especially since mine are so piss poor.
~
Those who have traveled with me, like the two Bob's, know that I am just a terrible wheel man. Despite this, my driving record is immaculate. This is because of my superior judgement.... knowing that I am a hazard at the wheel, I deftly avoid situations where my lack of driving skills would be apparent.
~
That is precisely what happened today as I rented a 30' Penske Diesel to deliver materials to a Coast Guard site in Cape Cod. After driving a mile, I quickly realized that I had no business driving a rig that big, and surrendered the wheel to the new Nanepashemet guy, Al, who proved to be the far better man..
~
It takes a big man.... nay, a Mountain of A Man.... to admit to his weaknesses.

I am licensed to drive the bigs rigs - asks Lulu Thistlesnatch - gotta go about 20 stones, as the Limeys would say. Pleasured her at the Turkey Trot the other night, and dirn neer herniatered my back. Big rig.

Chickens comin' home to roost on others fronts, reapin' what I sowed. I felled victim to one of the classic blunders, the most knowed is never get involved in a land war in Asia, but only slightly less well-known is this here: never go in against a Eye-talian when death is on the line.

But I figure to endure.
