The door was open. The car was running. It was now or never, so the little boy got in. He was going for a drive! Yes, he was leaving. He was going off into the world to do big things.
"Stop!" said a voice. The boy's mother appeared before his foot could reach the gas. "I'm just going down the street," he told her.
Her head moved from side to side. "You can't go yet, but the road will wait for you."
