The Best Thing

I can only drive standard on highways and in the prairies

oh I hear you sister.
I have the same manual car anxiety.
my university dorm roommate had 3 sisters, and she once told me this story of how they learned to drive standard. To learn, her father found this small yet steep hill in her neighbourhood, that was low/ no traffic. Before any of them were aloud to take the car out on their own, they would have to be able to stop and start at the top of that hill without rolling back.
They would spend hours, just at the top of that hill working on it, with no one around or behind them, until they all had hill-top confidence.

I always envied this ability, because I too lack it.

Don't be too hard on those feet of yours- they are after all, some of the cutest toes in town.

Mae, you certainly know how to make a girl feel better.

Me too

If it makes you feel any better, I feel stupid even when driving an automatic. There's just too much going on all at the same time and so quickly and with such serious consequences if you make a mistake.
