Moms Are Always Right

First, and first successful, drive home in the beat-up, pick-up, stick-shift truck today. Thank you, parents, for insisting very Europeanly that I not rely on automatic transmissions. Thank you for teaching me how to release a clutch, how to change gears, and how to never stall.

  1. David says his mom is not(!) right, because she failed to teach him to drive stick-shift..but he forgets how much she taught him about moving at a human pace on the back roads (cambridge, england, anybody?).
