So here's the current car situation.....
6 cars in the driveway and 51/2 drivers (Alec has his learner's permit).
Sounds like it works, right?
Natasha (Bryan's silver car) has been sitting in the car for several months patiently waiting for a new engine and the white car's transmission just died.
That leaves us with 4 cars and 51/2 drivers....still not too bad.
Except that two of those 4 cars are standard shift cars and only 1 driver (my uncle John) can drive stick shift.
So to help out with this situation, we decided that at least one other driver needs to learn to drive stick.
By the process of elimination, that person has become me. Bryan is a teenage boy and therefore too bullheaded to listen when learning and likely to blow out the clutch. Lindsay is a 20 year old girl with the same problem. Marianne doesn't have the time as she is working two jobs. Therefore, it all comes down to me.
In preparation for learning this new skill, my uncle has given me some homework.....read LEARNING TO DRIVE STICK on Cartalk.com. After reading a little bit of it, I have to admit that it is entertaining as well as informative.
I'm still nervous about actually trying this out though.
I'll keep you all posted on how this goes.
