The place God calls you is the place where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet.

Little Lessons

  1. Always drive with your hands at nine and three. That's right. It's no longer ten and two. And please, for the love, don't drive with your hand holding the opposite side of the steering wheel. When your airbag deploys you are significantly less likely to get an airbag burn if you're holding at nine and three. If you have an arm across the wheel, it'll break upon impact.

  2. If your windshield has any sort of crack: pay the flipping deductible. Just get it fixed. I know it's a small crack...barely visible. Airbags crack windshields. If your windshield is already cracked, the airbag will (apparently) shatter it...On. To. You.
Just a few small words of wisdom I have learned as of late.

Also, if your arm is across the steering wheel so if your hands aren't at 9 and 3 than more likely than not your fist will fly into your face and break your nose.

Thanks for the reminder, ohhh my your windsheild! Scarry! So glad everyone (even Tucker!) was ok. Is Ben's are healing up ok?
