I just returned from a lesson on how to drive a stick from the Snookums. He's a little shaken up, but he'll be fine.
I'm definitely getting better. I really want to learn because I may want to buy myself a new car that has a manual transmission. I went car shopping the other day and found that a lot of the cars that I wanted were sticks. I was SO tempted to just buy one and get it home with my limited stick driving abilities. Since I didn't want to limit my choices, I decided that I would ask him to resume the lessons. I'll wait for him to snap out of the shock before I ask for another one.
