15 Minutes

22 Jun

A few weeks ago, I had the chance to finally, FINALLY learn how to drive stick shift. And I was taught by a Pulitzer Prize winning writer, no less.

It was an adventure, to say the least, one I will write about in more depth soon, but for now, you can check out what Gene wrote for his column in the Washington Post magazine (and, I guess, for all the other Sunday magazines and papers where his column appears as well.)

Enjoy. And if you ever find yourself in labor and only a stick shift car in your midst, well, now you know who to call.
