“Why have you brought me all the way out here?” Brian looked around the deserted piece of land that was devoid of anything except the old water tower.
“Where else would you expect to practice?” Brian’s long-suffering dad threw him the car keys. “Times Square?”
“No need to be sarcastic. Do you think I really need this much space to do a three-point turn?” Brian climbed into the driver’s seat of the car and put his hands on the wheel as he waited for his father to clamber in beside him. “I am taking lessons, you know.”
“Yes, I know. Anyway, show me what you can do three-point turn -wise. Your instructor said that this was the manoeuvre we needed to work on.”
“Watch this.” Brian managed to turn the car and reversed into the old water tower.
Both men looked up at it, waiting for it to collapse, but, even though it swayed, it never fell. They looked at each other before his father uttered one word, “Drive!”
