Until now, I never...
Drove Around the Roundabout Five Times

seattle traffic circle

It’s summer time, which means I schlep a lot of kids around, mostly driving them to and from Greenlake.  Sometimes we can get a little hot and agitated in the car, and so I find an effective (yet probably not so safe) remedy for this orneriness is to do a little crazy driving.  Sometimes I make an abrupt sharp turn, or if we’re on a steep hill I pretend we’ve had brake failure and roll backwards.  Today I decided it would be fun to just keep driving around the traffic circle multiple times until we all got a little dizzy.  The kids loved it and it was a real mood changer, although it confused the heck out of the other driver on the road.
