Parallel parking; I even failed my driving test the first time because of it.  My Mom showed me a very cool trick for parallel parking, which doesn't work when parking behind a VW bug.  I was so ready on the day of the exam.  And my confidence was immediately deflated when the instructor pointed to the space between
VW Bugs and said, 'Parallel park, right there.'   I knew I flunked the second the right rear tire of mom's 1969 Chevy Kingswood Estate with wood grain paneling rambled up on the curb and the hood of the car was still blocking traffic.  Ah yes, the sweet memories of youth.

I read the book "The Wedding"...hope you read "The Notebook" first...if not, it's not too late.  It will all fit in.  Mr Sparks writes some great books.  And thanks for giving a vote of confidence to our Seattle about those Seahawks, too ?!?!?
