Success!

I did it! I still can’t believe it’s true, but I did – I passed the written driver’s exam! And in French, without the help of a translator! I can’t take much credit for the success, though. It was all Johann.

You see, he parked in a different parking space than he did the last time I took the test, to rid us of the bad mojo. Then, instead reading a book while he waited for me, like he did last time, he took a walk and bought a newspaper. And rather than reading in the car, he waited in the vestibule and read there. He didn’t watch the door this time either, but turned his back to it and only looked when someone came out.

And instead of waiting quietly, he sang softly under his breath. The song? “Success” by Iggy Popp. So, as I’m sure you can see, this is really his victory. Three cheers for Johann!

Success
Iggy Popp
(I would post the song here for you to listen to, but I can’t figure out how, so you’ll have to be content with the lyrics.)

Here comes success
Over my hill
Here comes success
Well here comes my car
Here comes my Chinese rug
Here comes success

In the last ditch
I’ll think of you
In the last ditch
I will be true
Sweetheart, I’m telling you
Here comes the zoo

Here comes success
Hooray, success!
Here comes success
Hooray, success!
Oh, oh, success
I can’t help myself
I got to, got to, got to, got to…
I can’t stand it…

Here comes my face
It’s plain bizarre
Here comes my face
Out of the crowd
Sweetheart, I’m telling you
Here comes the zoo

In the last ditch
Here comes success
Here comes success
I’m gonna do the twist
I’m moved man, I’m wigged

Baby, let’s blast off
Blast off, find success
Oh, you slay me, baby
I’m gonna do the twist
I’m gonna hop like a frog
I’m gonna climb the street and do anything I want!
