driving lessons

"Why does it feel so late? It's only like 9:30."
"Well, it looks like 4 o'clock in the morning around here."

We were coming back from UNO at night, through Gentilly, having
gone there to find a big stretch of lit empty parking lot so I
could teach him how to drive a stick-shift. Had we gotten out
there earlier* or it not rained it probably would have been
easier, but what can you do. Now one of my car-less wonder
friends has my old Si, and I don't have to deal with it anymore.

*At 6am, when you're in the bar dancing to music from highschool
with the other fifteen or so people still out at this hour, you
think, oh, beer number 10, oh that might be a good idea, home is
only two blocks away, we can walk home and crash... Bad idea.

music: Arcade Fire: Neighborhood 1 (Tunnels)
