I have a good friend Emily who wants to carpool to choir rehearsal 20 miles away. But when I ride with her I get carsick because she pulses with her accelerator foot, fast/slow, fast/slow. She is beginning to wonder why I am never available to ride with her. How do I explain to her?
Car Sick

Dear Car Sick,

Simply state your truth to Emily:  When I ride with you, I get car sick because you pulse with your accelerator foot, fast/slow, fast/slow.  

Now isn’t that easy?  Are you smiling?

So often the answer to the question lies within the question itself.
