Welcome to storybooth Sketchy Saturdays! We couldn't just sit around over the weekends with all of your amazing true stories to sift through and animate, with all of you just tapping around on social media - so - we thought we'd try something new, something fun and light and funny, and well, sketchy!
Lizzie had been looking forward to the final step of moving from her learners permit to her actual drivers license for what felt like forever, and she was all studied up and ready, but still nervous for the dmv written test, and excited and anxious about the road test, and all the night before she had been repeating over and over in her head - I'm Taking My Drivers License Test, I'm Taking My Drivers License Test - and she was up all night, too excited to sleep.
And so, after a long sleepless night, she woke up - and - got her period, and, it was a bad one, terrible premenstrual cramps, bad stomach ache, nauseous, dizzy, and just overall yucky feeling. It was a sketchy situation, at best, and taking the dmv written test feeling so sick was not her first choice.
Her Dad drove her to the DMV, kept asking her what was wrong, and finally she told him Dad, I don't need counselling or anything, I got my period, I feel really sick, like I'm going to puke my guts out! As if that wasn't bad enough, the DMV was totally crowded, hot, uncomfortable, and there were long lines everywhere.
They got in line to get the paperwork done and all the approvals for her to take the drivers license test, and suddenly her stomach just started churning and she felt so queasy, she knew this wasn't leading anywhere good and told her dad again, I'm sick, I got my period, I have to go to the bathroom.
He tried to stop her, didn't want them to lose their place in line, but she told him, I'm about to puke my guts out, so if I don't go to the bathroom now, it's going to happen right here. Of course, he told her, go, go, hurry.
She ran to the bathroom and the minute she got to a stall she got totally sick, threw up everywhere, and it was really loud too. She couldn't help it, she didn't care, she was so nauseous and sick. She really did, she puked her guts out. After a few minutes she was done, nothing left to throw up, and she picked herself up and washed her face and tried to get herself to look slightly better than the hot mess she saw in the mirror.
All she wanted to do was to pass her driving road test, pass the written test, get her drivers license and swing by her friends houses and say come, drive with me. But here she was as sick as a dog and she still hadn't taken the test. Finally she pulled herself together, totally exhausted, and stepped back out into the DMV. Her dad ran up to her, all excited, it's time, you can take the test now!
He saw that she looked even worse than when she ran off, and asked, what's wrong with you. She practically yelled, I GOT MY PERIOD, I FEEL SICK, I PUKED MY GUTS OUT - THREW UP EVERYWHERE! And he was like, well, go take the drivers license test anyway.
Still racked with pain, she took the tests. the online DMV written test, and everything else - and - guess what, she passed. But she felt so sick that when she went back out to meet her dad he figured she had failed, because she looked so unhappy.
They took her picture for her permit and her permanent driver's license, and she looks green, forcing a smile, and just sickly looking, because she really was. Now, the picture on her drivers permit is always there to remind her of how she got her period, got sick, puked her guts out, and passed her drivers license test all at the same time!
