We'll love you just the way you are if you're perfect.
So many times I've been just gripping the steering wheel and driving, and just have a piece of paper on where my horn is, and just writing sort of looking up and down. I've done that so much! It'll be worth the crash.
Peace of mind for five minutes, that's what I crave.
