Driver's seat

MSU News - January 11, 2017 - 2:14pm
I've done a fair amount of embarrassing things in my life. I've fallen down in public multiple times, said the wrong things, had wardrobe malfunctions, walked into the wrong locker room and just plain looked the fool. (Side note, my daughter texted yesterday to tell me she takes after me - she slipped on the subway and ended up in someone's lap.) Anyway, I've been embarrassing myself for years and will certainly continue to do so. One of my earliest memories of being embarrassed happened at Cedar Point Amusement Park. I was finally tall enough to "drive" my own car around the little speedway track. You know the kind - everyone is on a track that pushes the car through but riders pretend that they're actually driving. After the ride was over, I climbed out of my car onto the platform - and realized I had climbed out on the wrong side. Instead of being on the side where everyone else was, I was stranded on some middle island on the other side of the roadway. They had to stop all the cars and a worker had to come get me. I couldn't even "drive "an autonomous car without making a public spectacle of myself.
