Narrative Essay On What Car Are We Taking

Great Essays
“What car are we taking?” My mom questioned as she rushed to get the keys. It was my cousin 's Bat Mitzvah of course we were already a few minutes behind. My brother, Grant, never could tie his tie correctly and my Dad always seemed to forget how to do it himself, and well I seemed to always be the last one ready. I guess it was some pretty exciting stuff at the time. It was the first one in the family, since my parents and aunts and uncles had got mitzvahed. “Ummm… Im not sure I think we should take the honda” “No no no, let 's take the truck, I don 't want to have to drive the honda on the way home.” I could just picture my dad muttering under his breath “why did you even ask what car we are taking if you were going to decide anyway.” …show more content…
The kind of cry you try your hardest to hold it in, but it just bursts out of your throat loud and painful. My dad was already out of the car pacing along with my brother. They were crazy it was freezing outside, but they both were to pent up to stay inside. He called the police, to my surprise they took a while to get to us, ambulances came as well. I remained in the car when they arrived with my Mom. The blue and red lights reflected on my soaked face, I remember wondering how did we get so lucky. My Dad did receive a ticket for reckless driving. Stupid idiot fell asleep if he did not receive a ticket, it should have been worse! Life is a rollercoaster, it 's as simple as that. Ups and downs turns left and right. This car crash was a huge blind turn. Who knew after a lovely celebration, my life would be put on the line along with my families. Maybe the roller coaster turns to the worst. A really steep drop. Or maybe the rollercoaster takes a turn for the best. A really smooth transition. The crash just reminded me we are only human and it 's physically impossible to control our lives. They run on a crazy path and the best we can do as humanly possible is to expect the

    I was so excited to ride a roller coaster. Dad and I hopped in and the coaster took off. Once we got to the top of the first drop, my dad looked at me and said “why did you talk me into this?” BAM! The coaster was off in a vertical drop. Shaking and throwing us around, it was not the most pleasant ride.…

    The next day was a fresh day and a new start. While I was busy my mom gave my uncle a call and asked him if he can teach me how to drive because she had absolutely no patience for me. He showed up in his tan Nissan Corolla and took the time to show me how all the things in the car worked. To be honest I imagined that my sixty year old uncle will not be able to teach Me well. But he did while I was attempting to drive he would tell me if I was too close to a certain lane or getting to close to the…

    In just a few seconds they would be off, gone to travel over the track in a bright blur. The screams enclosed the car with the force of adrenaline as it appeared and disappeared in a flash. I heard the happy and terrified screams of the people on the coaster and the booming voice of the ones controlling it while strolling around Paradise Pier in Disneyland with my family. At this point, I hadn't been on the roller coaster yet. I preferred to keep myself on the ground and not on the coaster going up side down into crazy drops.…

    I skipped school to take my behind-the-wheel drivers test. Both of my parents came to support me while my body was crawling with nerves. I didn’t really drive often before this so, I didn’t really know what to expect and felt like I would make dumb mistakes that all older, experienced drivers knew about. I’m not going to go through the whole processes of my test step by step because it’s pretty self explanatory, but long story short, I got my license. While all my friends had their own cars, I had to drive my dad’s car which is a 2014 White Toyota Highlander.…

    After waiting for a few moments, I sprinted towards my car, reversed out of the garden, and sped towards the autobody shop. Thankfully, the men at the shop wordlessly took my car into a shed while I found a spot on a couch in the waiting room, relieved but shaken from my near-accident. I called my dad to explain what happened and tried to remain calm, but as soon as I heard his voice I lost it in a mess of sniveling tears. “Grace calm down”, he said, “Are you okay? Is the car damaged?…

    They were my father’s parents, and they had not seen me in a long time, as well as anyone else on my father’s side. Nobody on my dad’s side got along with my mother. As my two brothers and I loaded our belongings into our grandparent’s car, I couldn’t help but stare at my old house. I remembered how much I had been anticipating this day, the day where I could go away from all of the moving and go see my dad for a whole month. He had never had me for such a long period of time, and living at my mom’s had been difficult.…

    I was supposed to drive to the party and go home immediately, and for some stupid reason I decided to do the complete opposite. I had recently turned 16 and like most, I received my driver’s licence. My parents had been real strict and careful when my older sister got her licence. She couldn’t drive past 11pm (legal time limit for minors), she…

    I could not believe it. It was so nice of this random stranger to give away his prize because I did not have any. My mom always tells me how she’d never seen me smile so big as the day that that man had given me that bear. It turned my day back to the best day ever and as I climbed back into the tan Ford Windstar, I looked at my parents and said “I love Six…

    As they dragged me up the steps to the ride, I saw the rollercoaster fly past us with people screaming and yelling. They were having the fun I wish I could have. I quickly looked down, and my body unable to be controlled by my brain, tried to turn around and walk back down, but my friends took my arm and dragged me towards the ride. I needed to get over my fear, but I couldn’t stop imagining the rollercoaster breaking down mid-ride, leaving me stuck there for hours. The more I thought about my fear, the more I got distracted about getting on.…

    Sometimes in life, one has to take chances. I was not sure of that until I strapped myself down in the scariest rollercoaster at Six Flags Fiesta amusement park. My heart was running a marathon as the ride climbed to the peak. My sweaty palms were glued on the back of a passenger’s headrest. My life was depending on it.…
