Concentration Tip of the Day

You've heard the statistic that most driving mishaps happen within 1/4 mile from home? My tip is that if you are ever driving in a country where you are dealing with following maps and bizarre highways signs, driving a right-drive manual-shift car on the left side of the road, and avoiding heinous English radio commercials all at the same time, don't ever let your guard down for one second. In my casual I'm-a-pro-at-this-after-seven-days-of-driving-in-England attitude, I managed to turn into oncoming traffic at a roundabout less than 1/4 mile from "home," a.k.a. the Heathrow rental car return. Luckily, traffic wasn't too heavy, an oncoming bus stopped, and a car approaching on the roundabout moved out of the way. Never, ever think you've got it mastered, kids, 'cause before you know it, you'll be heading straight into the bonnet of a menacing lorry. ;-)

It is now my personal goal to casually drop the words "bonnet of a menacing lorry" in conversation at least three times today. Thanks for the intercontinental vocabulary lesson!
