A Basque in Boise

Rite of passage

Sorry if you’re tired of reading about it, but I can’t help it if I suck at driving. However, I’m starting to think that maybe one of those times I had trouble with the car might have simply been a much overlooked step to overcoming divorce.

Today was one of those unsettling days, where negative energy just kept building around me and no amount of push-ups or side plank reverse flies seemed able to drive it away.  The day started with me standing by the phone, waiting for a call that never came. Thankfully, it wasn’t romantic in nature. I don’t really have to worry about those coming or not coming. I started to get nervous about being the queue-buster tomorrow at work because I haven’t done it before. Then, I got a text message from a friend telling me she hit a car on the Micron freeway exit. Luckily nobody was hurt, her car will look like new after a trip to the body shop, and she even made it to work rattled, but somewhat on time.

Victoria is the third woman I know (including me) who gets in a car wreck shortly after getting divorced. I ate the back of a white pick-up truck in 2009 on my way to the Flying M to meet Diana for coffee, who had a similar experience as a born-again-single when she rear-ended the bitch in the BMW. I was the only one who totalled her car, but what can I say? I used to be a girl scout and maybe it’s different in the States, but in the Basque Country a scout doesn’t do things half-assed.

And here I was blaming myself for busting up my second Saab in ten years when, apparently, it was nothing more than a rite of passage. Looks like the day is looking up after all.

    I bet men are now thinking, Well, there you go, women just can’t drive, single, married, or divorced….

    Victoria, welcome to the club! As for the “women just can’t drive,” who said that men don’t wreck their cars too? Single (there’s a reason they’re single), married (why is he married if he doesn’t love her) or divorced (he must have done something wrong).
