Riding a Tractor
“Turn the key. Okay; you got it. Nice and easy” my grandfather said in a nervous voice, “ Don't go near the hill!”
“Okay Perperé! Stop worrying! I'm gonna do fine!” I screamed over the sound of the engine. This is when I learned how to drive a tractor. I was about 5 or 6 years old and I was also extremely eager to learn.
On a summer afternoon when I was practicing my fishing skills with a magnetic hook and fish, I asked my grandfather if he would teach me how to drive a tractor. He didn't like the idea at first, but after 10 minutes of me giving him puppy dog eyes, he said sure. I could tell he still wasn't liking the idea.
We went onto his front lawn. I was getting nervous. I thought to myself, I don't want to do this anymore. Maybe I should back out. My grandfather got his red, sparkly tractor out of the garage, settled me in the seat and gave me instructions. That's when I knew that I had to stick with it.
I turned the key and the tractor started moving! I was so excited that I stopped paying attention to the direction that the tractor was going in and crashed into a lamp post! I was fine, and so was the tractor, except for a scratch and a tiny dent. I thought that my grandfather was going to be SO mad at me, but surprisingly, he didn't care! “Haley, Haley! Are you okay?” my grandfather said as he quickly ran over to me.
“Perperé I'm okay, really, I'm okay!” I said in a somewhat shocked voice.
I had a really great time driving a tractor and I want to try again. My mom wouldn't be as okay if I were to crash our tractor though.
