I'm a decent driver...not the best, but tonight I felt like James Bond. It was pretty awesome. We're getting some light flurries tonight, and the roads were a bit slick on my way home from work. I got to the intersection I have to turn down to get to my apartment off of Oakland Ave, and as I went to make the turn, the car started sliding. As per usual with a ford focus, the rear end started swinging around. I'm so used to it that I started steering in the direction of the skid and started to regain control. I ended up perfectly lining up with the road I needed as I regained full control. I never stopped moving and just continued on down the road. It was so perfectly timed, that the guy driving the SUV that was waiting at the corner that watched the whole thing was laughing and apploading me in his car. I had a big grin on my face and gave him a thumbs up. Not going to lie...I felt damn cool after that, and I had to share. I hope you can visualize it and join me in the coolness. Yay for defensive driving!
