“You’re driving.” – Connect the Dots, A Daily Post Writing Prompt

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Connect the Dots.”

Open your nearest book to page 82. Take the third full sentence on the page, and work it into a post somehow.

The nearest book to me at the time I read the prompt was my High School daughter’s pleasure read, “The Naturals” by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. A book she has been trying to talk me into reading.

However, the real story behind this post is my daughter and the words “You’re driving.” She is one of those teens that loves to be driven around. She has no desire to drive. She has even so far confessed that she wants to move to a big city like New York or Chicago so she doesn’t have to drive and she can take the bus.

The irony is she just got her driver’s license Monday. And today, I told her, “You’re driving.” Now, her book is mocking me. Maybe I should read the book.
