I was really, REALLY frightened as I placed my helmet over my head, climbed into the smelly red race car jumpsuit, and slid into the seat of my Go-Kart last weekend.
I dislike driving a car, let alone speeding around a track in a tiny micro-machine with no, and I repeat NO seatbelt. WHAT?!?!
In fact I abhor driving so much, that I don’t even have an up to date Driver’s License. When I filled in my form and noted the expiration date on my license, I turned to my husband and said, “Oh no, it looks like I probably won’t be able to race. So sad.”
To my dismay, no one caught the Expired Driver’s License and I was ushered to the track. All I could do was think of the Year of Outrageous Living and that I didn’t want to let my ladies and readers down.
SO I DID IT! Wheeee!
And guess what? I LOVED IT! I felt like I was playing Super Mario Cart, except it was REAL. I would have been Yoshi, by the way. No, not the Princess, YOSHI.
So Dear Readers, my Outrageous Act this week was pretending to be Danika Patrick and Yoshi in One.
In closing, a quote by Eleanor Roosevelt…
You must do the things you think you cannot do.
Such a fulfilling way to live!
And now, I will make my way to the DMV, which will go smoothly with ease and grace…which would be an OUTRAGEOUS experience in itself.;)
