To be fair, the first flush of excitement still clings to me when I drive since I'm only a few months in.
Still, I've learned to really enjoy the little things about driving; being in charge of the vehicle (which I've officially named Suzy, ps), rolling down the windows, blasting music. I've become quite adept a car dancing as well; I'm a regular Car-yshnikov (dance-pun-high-five).
Trust me, that was a really funny joke.
The point is, I love me a car trip.
