So a couple of years ago my brother was driving my mom somewhere in downtown Lancaster and somebody ran a red light and T-boned them. Then about a year ago mom pulled out in front of someone and was hit again. The result is that she is extremely skittish when traveling in any vehicle, it doesn’t matter who is doing the driving. I just didn’t realize how skittish until tonight when my brother and I took her out to eat. The hands bracing on the dashboard and quick intakes of breath when making a turn can be unnerving.
I’m considering a quick run to the mall to buy a sleep mask so she can just close her eyes the whole way to Delaware. :)
