A few weeks ago, I accomplished a bucket list item – learning to drive a manual. I know, most of you are probably saying “what’s the point?” After all, the classic clutch is slowly disappearing among the masses, at least. It was a big deal for me and it was a great deal of fun! Since I live in NYC and the marvel of Uber has come to be, I haven’t had to get in the driver’s seat for 14 years.
Im grateful to my good friend for volunteering his time and his car. He was patient and I got the hang of it. Of course, I didn’t every get out of 2nd gear because we were in a parking lot that was not completely empty!
It was an awesome experience to feel the clutch engage. In many ways it was a metaphor for great sex. It may take a little time to warm up and get in sync but once you experience that moment where it all “clicks” and you are in the groove, watch out!
