    These are fun, but you have to play along too – it’s only fair. When I was four, my best friend and I were playing in my Dad’s car, pretending to drive to the store. Even though I’d been warned, I decided to see what would happen if I moved the stick on the steering wheel. Turns out I put the car in reverse and across the busy road we sailed, adults screaming and yelling after us, until the car came to a clunking stop in the ditch.

        Yes. I read and reread this. There is so much here – echoes many of my own conversations in therapy.

      This is very similar to something that happened to me, except that it was my brother wot released the handbrake. My parents car was parked on a slope while they were in the pub in full view of the enormous window where they sat. Their faces were priceless as it dawned on them that the car was within about half a minute of making contact with that window. Never seen my dad scramble so fast to get out that door …
