New driver Martin

Martin had just received his brand-new driver’s license. The family trooped out to the driveway and climbed into the car, with Martin in the driver’s seat, ready to take them for a ride for the first time. His father was in the backseat, directly behind the newly minted driver.

“I ‘ll bet you’ re back there to get a change of scenery after all those months of sitting in the front seat, teaching me how to drive,” said the boy to his father.

“Nope,” came his father’s reply, “I’m gonna sit here and kick the back of your seat as you drive, just like you ‘ve been doing to me all these years.”
