Mildred waited sixty-two years to get her driver’s license so, in preparation for the event of ticking that off of her ‘bucket list’, she watched every season of Street Outlaws.

Her recently deceased husband had a 1958 Plymouth Fury which he had kept in mint condition and full running order, so her sweet ‘ride’ had a 350 cu in engine with two four-barrel carburetors!

When the BIG DAY came, Mildred couldn’t wait to ‘smoke those hides’ and ‘burned out’ of the DMV parking lot.

She squealed with delight when a Corvette pulled up beside her at a red light, beyond which was a long straight away, so she revved the engine as a challenge.

The light changed and the race was ON- Mildred easily left that Corvette in the dust – only a siren sounded and she could see a State Trooper waving at her to pull over.

The day ended with her daughter bailing her out but Mildred, all the while, had never stopped grinning because she had gotten her driver’s license, won a drag race, and had been arrested; a bucket list trifecta!

    Had me in from the first sentence and then you added five more gems. Hilarious. 🙂

      Thanks, Doug. I was grinning like Mildred while writing. 😁

  2. Susan Joy Clark 06/23/2021 / 6:58 pm

    I love that she achieved her bucket list trifecta. How funny. It reminds me of “The Little Old Lady of Pasadena.”

  3. Pat Brockett 06/23/2021 / 7:08 pm

    Hilarious! What a bucket list! That photo is a perfect match for your SSS.

    • Susan St.Pierre 06/23/2021 / 7:16 pm

      I found the photo first with the basic story in mind then Mildred wrote that tale! Thanks.

  4. Dora 06/23/2021 / 7:56 pm

    (Laughing) Are we going to see Mildred sky-diving next?!

  5. trentpmcd 06/23/2021 / 8:17 pm

    I hate to see what else is on her bucket list!

      • trentpmcd 06/24/2021 / 7:42 am

        lol, looking forward to it! Maybe a jailbreak is in order 😉

      • Susan St.Pierre 06/24/2021 / 7:44 am

        OH the possibilities are endless! I’ve been giggling as she’s come into focus in my mind. Thanks Trent! HA HA

  6. Jen Goldie 06/23/2021 / 8:34 pm

    Excellent 🤣
    I just watched THE BUCKET LIST again with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. Watch it if you can. 😊

      • Jen Goldie 06/23/2021 / 9:29 pm

        Cool! I watch it on Netflix. 👍😊

  7. Frank Hubeny 06/23/2021 / 9:20 pm

    That was a memorable first ride in that car.

  8. Shweta Suresh 06/23/2021 / 10:25 pm

    Haha. You go, Mildred! Great story, Susan 😃

    • Susan St.Pierre 06/24/2021 / 7:29 am

      😁 Thank-you Shweta! She’ll be haunting more stories.

  9. The Atomic Mage 06/24/2021 / 3:14 am

    Go Mildred!! Good for her, and proves it’s never too late to go grab some dreams. I decided to take my test at age 33 and passed first time (though it was no vintage Plymouth I burned rubber with, more a Hyundai Getz 😂) Good one, Susan!

    • Susan St.Pierre 06/24/2021 / 7:28 am

      I think she’ll be returning for more adventures now that she’s made her entrance. Thanks!

      • The Atomic Mage 06/24/2021 / 9:59 am

        Look forward to what she ticks off her list next!

  10. Mason Bushell 06/24/2021 / 4:21 am

    Haha! That was great, I could imagine Mildred doing all that like a true badass! Nice one, Susan.

    • Susan St.Pierre 06/24/2021 / 7:27 am

      Her second childhood has been achieved, Mason. I’m going to keep her around. Thanks! 😁

      • Mason Bushell 06/24/2021 / 9:34 am

        Indeed. Oh you have to. I can see her having a lot more misadventures on her bucket kicking adventure.

  11. Chris Hall 06/24/2021 / 4:39 am

    Love this Susan! We must hear more from Mildred. What a character!

    • Susan St.Pierre 06/24/2021 / 7:26 am

      You surely will. She has a lot of quirks to explore. Thank you Chris!

  12. Dave Williams 06/24/2021 / 5:31 am

    Funny! Mildred is a spitfire, and I hope she has many more adventures 🙂

    • Susan St.Pierre 06/24/2021 / 7:24 am

      She wasn’t originally going to continue as a character but, from the responses, I think she’ll be back. Thanks!

      • Dave Williams 06/24/2021 / 7:46 am

        Yes, us fans of Mildred would appreciate another adventure 🙂

  13. ceayr 06/24/2021 / 5:39 am

    This reminded me of Monty Python’s Hell’s grannies sketch!
    Funny stuff, Susan

    • Susan St.Pierre 06/24/2021 / 7:23 am

      I’ve never seen that! I’ll look it up. Thanks a lot! 😁

  14. UP 06/24/2021 / 9:42 am

    Brilliantly humorous

  15. clark 06/24/2021 / 3:09 pm

    A total, albeit fictional, role model for me and anyone I would hang out with…Surely there are few things in life that are as satisfying as knowing you have, as the Bard advises, been true to yourself.
    Fun Six

  16. GirlieOnTheEdge 06/24/2021 / 9:25 pm

    Talk about going after what you want regardless of age! (or perhaps because of, lol)
    Love Mildred’s spirit and that she went for a trifecta!
    Great Six, Susan 😀

  17. jenne49 06/25/2021 / 5:23 pm

    So funny! I was rooting for Mildred all the way.
    (And that picture, by the way, is just perfect for the story.)

  18. JT Twissel 07/13/2021 / 4:58 pm

    Ha! As someone who flunked the driving part of the driver’s test twice, this story really tickles my funny bone. Currently I’m trying to figure out how to renew my driver’s license online. What a horror that is!

    • Susan St.Pierre 07/13/2021 / 5:20 pm

      Thanks! It pleases me to have made you smile. 🙂
      At least online doesn’t require a road test. LOL
      I know what you mean, though, the DMV is even a bigger hassle online!

      • JT Twissel 07/13/2021 / 5:31 pm

        I don’t have any depth perception and so it was the parallel parking that did me in the first time. The second time the tester said turn right here and I did. Unfortunately he didn’t mean right away. He meant at the next intersection. Whoops!

      • Susan St.Pierre 07/13/2021 / 5:38 pm

        I don’t do parallel parking. Glad it isn’t often necessary where I live. 😉

Tell me something good...
