My son Science Ninja is the proud possessor of a drivers' license! He got a perfect score on his test. And the DMV lady who did the paperwork was absolutely delightful and so kind and funny.
Her, to SN: Do you want to keep your learners' permit for a souvenir? If not, give it to your mama. Mamas like to keep these things.
Me: Yes, I totally want it!
Her, to SN: Congratulations! You got a perfect score!
Me *nervous*: What score do you need to get to pass?
Her: You can miss 10 points.
Me: TEN POINTS? TEN???? THESE are the people you have to
worry about, my son. The 10 pointers.
Science Ninja, to DMV Lady: She gets like this.
Her: All mamas do.
