“I just started driving…”

I just started driving and it was the funniest thing because everyone in my family besides me knows how to drive. My sister’s working toward — my sibling is, working toward getting their license. I always forget they’re non-binary too but they’re like also not out so around parents and people, they’re my sister. By myself, they are my sibling. It’s kinda weird. But you do what you gotta do to keep your identity safe. What was it? Driving. Driving was fun. I got real scared though. Cause I didn’t know that when you take your foot off the brake, the car just moves. Like you don’t — I forgot that cars move without acceleration, right? So if you take your foot off the brake it just moves slowly, and the accelerator’s for what it is. It’s for making it go faster, but I forgot that it would go even if I didn’t have my foot on the accelerator. So my dad tells me to let my foot gently off the brake and I take it off the brake and the car starts moving and I get scared and I immediately slam my foot back down on the brake. It was so funny.
