Ask A Jonas – Brett’s Thoughts about Driving

We get asked lots of questions when we’re doing farm toursselling soap at craft fairs, or simply running errands.  Since most of those answers are heard only by the person who asked, we decided to share some of the common questions here on the blog.  And of course you can ask a question of your own!

Brett, how do you like being able to drive? ~DynamicKitty

I love being able to drive – but I don’t like driving itself. When I’m driving I get knots in my shoulders because I’m so tense, and the longer I drive the worse it gets. I have no idea why it happens, but it does! The other day I had to cross the bridge into Louisville for the first time, with all of the construction and traffic… lets just say that Colter spent quite some time rubbing the knots out of my shoulder after that. I’m finally getting to the point where driving to college doesn’t make me tense up, but driving over the bridge wasn’t fun.

Because Colter and I are going to college together, he’s become my driving buddy, and I don’t know what I’d do without him. Colter is the DJ, the air conditioning and heat manipulator, and the person who takes care of all the phone calls and texts from Mom. I don’t touch my phone while I’m driving (it goes in the cup holder farthest from me) so he is what I call the “Chief Communicator”. He also hands me snacks on our way home from college when we’re both starving because we were in class for several hours. It’s pretty handy. 😉

Being able to drive is great – I’m able to do what I need to do, without having to wait for a ride or anything. While I don’t really like doing it, I know that it’s a necessary skill to have, and I’m grateful that I’m able to do it!
