why do you let your boyfriend drive when you yourself can drive the car?
to make him a more manly man
did you really put your trust in his driving skills?
i did but i can't help to feel that i'm a better driver whenever i feel scared hehe
but why you can't shut your mouth up while he's driving?
blame the knowledge about driving that i have.
do you think you are a better driver than he is?
my brain says yes but the heart's screaming a big no :P
