Recorded 9/22/16 on the walk to school.
Z: I can't wait to drive.
N: You know, it's not too far off, like, five years.
Z: Really? I thought you had to be sixteen.
N: No, fourteen in South Dakota, so long as there's an adult in the passenger seat.
Z [grinning]: YES.
N: Of course, some people say that most of your generation won't even need to learn to drive because of the self-driving cars that are coming out.
Z: I don't want one of those self-driving ones... [pause]. Actually, if there's a machine gun in back I do, but otherwise I want to drive myself.
