Brandon got his driver’s license this week.
I believe that when you reach a certain age, you are required by social norms to make a few certain cliche jokes when certain events occur.
One such event is when somebody gets their first driver’s license.
An aged person should give out the warning that goes something like this:
“Stay off the streets. Brandon has his driver’s license.”
Then another elder statesman ups the ante with the predictable rejoinder:
“Stay off the sidewalks, too!”
I am allergic to cliches and cheap humor, so I refrained from making any of these jokes. Besides if family history is any indicator, it is only trees that have something to worry about.
