Cool -- All right, how has it been for you so far to be a member of the MI-COVID Diaries? I love to be, I love it. Why do you like it? Cause I can get money to get Robux because I never really get Robux. Okay. I want Robux. I think fifteen minutes should be $15. Every minute you should get a dollar. Oh, yeah, I don't think they're going to take that in the suggestion, that's expensive. Ha-ha You'd have to give them some really really good data for a dollar a minute. Then let's give them more data.
I wonder how Halloween is gonna work out. Honestly, personally, if I was a kid or if I had children, I probably would not let them trick or treat cause that's like a whole -- I mean unless you want through the process of literally getting every single treat or sanitizing it make sure there's anything on it. But I don't know I guess, how much trouble people want to go to get their children their candies, but I don't know It could work, but I don't see it having too much of a turnout.
I want to talk to you about my driver's test and my experience with drivers ed. So when I was approaching 15 and 1/2 or whatever it is that you're supposed to start thinking about doing it -- doing driver education. I noticed everyone else is really psyched or at least it seemed like everyone -- everyone but I was not I was pretty nervous. I didn't really feel comfortable with the idea of like being responsible for the car moving around and going different speeds. It's funny looking back. I don't remember -- I mean nothing happened to me in a car, like I never gotten a serious car accident or anything. But for some reason I was just, terrifying to me especially idea of going like really really fast for some reason. So right away my instructor like the first day of class. We're going to to drive around and I say “I'm really scared of going fast”. And he was like, “well everybody else is going to be driving normally but we're taking you, specifically, to the highway right away”. So, you know that it's safe and you can do it and not you know, not die, not have a car accident. But then it came time for the actual test, and I'm you know breathing and I'm like everything's going to be fine to myself, I’m sure. We get into the car and we do the parking part, which was also nerve-wracking obviously. Parking part goes fine. Okay, now we're going to drive around. And I remember there's like a -- a -- I remember very distinctly him asking like “okay if you were going to crash” like as we're driving, “where would you, where would you aim for” and I was like, “oh for the for the tree over there” and he's like, “that's right don't -- like make sure you to pull away from traffic.” But the all, so that's literally -- I'm sure I did a lot of other things, but that's the only other part that I remember besides, can you guess where we're going with this, the part where I failed the test. So we're on the highway. We're going to turn I've taken an exit I've literally never taken in my life. I've never taken this exit before in the moment all I thought was okay now I'm going to…
I am currently reading The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. This book is gonna take some dedication to finish because it's seven hundred pages long. But it's a fascinating as well it won a Pulitzer Prize when it was published and it was recently made into a movie that was released in 2019 and Nicole Kidman stars as one of the leading female characters. Another way that I am dealing with the pandemic is I am not eating inside restaurants. Dr. Fauci said that indoor dining at public restaurants was a dangerous thing to do at the present time. So I have been cooking at home and to make this more fun and to keep me from getting bored with the same old recipes. I have been trying out new recipes and I have learned to use a kitchen device a steamer that somebody gave me several years ago, that I had never unpacked and learned to use. I'm also watching Netflix movies and find that as another way of remaining connected to the cultural world and I plan to watch the movie of The Goldfinch as soon as I finish the novel.
