The phone rang yesterday, I picked it up and said "hello" , no answer, I said "hello" again, still no answer, the line wasn't dead I could hear movement. " Hello?" I said once more still no answer but this time I could faintly hear someone. Annoyed I hung up and went back to what I was doing. Wasn't till a little while after I looked at my phone and noticed that I had rung the house from my mobile in my pocket. It was me who I heard moving.
Mystery solved, about an hour later the phone rang again, " Hello?" I answered to which there was no reply, I repeated the process and still no answer, suddenly I remember what I had done earlier and yup it had happened again, I had been talking to myself yet again.
First driving lesson went okay, only problem being when asked questions I tend to give my answers in a sequence of words, actions and noises. She had asked what happens when a car stalls so I gave a demonstration of the noise and a little shudder of a stalling car. I wasn't particularly good at what she was telling me to do, I couldn't get the hang of steering the way she wanted me to do it, the peddles were a lot more sensitive than my normal xbox controls and being rather tall I didn't fit particularly well into her little Suzuki Swift.
I know I'm intelligent but I can't help but wonder if I'll ever be able to drive, you're supposed to not think and let the actions come naturally. I can't not think. I need to consider everything I'm doing and that usually means I forget something. Both my sister and mother are awful at saying which way is right and left but I'm normally pretty good at it, however when in a car I seem to forget everything.
Oh well at least I got a trip to the Falkirk Wheel.
