Driving test

I have been training for my dreaded practical driving test for a while, and the time has come. I give myself a 50/50 chance of passing. I am trying to keep my hope down so if or when I do fail and I have to put up another £90 to get another go, I am not too pissed. We'll see though.

After a slow start, I have been going at two new year's resolution. The first is for better dental care and the second is no carbonated beverages. I hope the first one lasts all year and the second one lasts for a reasonable amount of time. I haven't drank any soda for two days which is pretty long for me. The dental care involves brushing for two minutes in the morning and evening (and once in the afternoon, ideally), mouthwash twice a day, and flossing once a day as well as wearing my teeth grinding preventer while I sleep. So far it is going okay. I have been dreading going to the dentist and getting a bad bill of health and having to pay a couple of hundred pounds on some expensive treatment, so prevention is my best friend.

Something deeper coming later this week, I promise. Between this driving test and a paper I turned in on Sunday, lots been going on in ol' duder's head. Lotta ins, lotta outs. Once we get past the test, I should be a little bit more relaxed. If, of course, Allah wills it.
