Welcome back for Even Day Five of the 4th Annual September Sapphire Even Day Blog Challenge.
We’re moving closer to my birthday on September 12th! Stay tuned for that day’s post along with a giveaway.
Believe it or not, I did not get my driver’s license until I was 21. I never had a real interest in driving when I was a teenager. I took Driver’s Ed in high school loooooonnnnnnggggg before it was required. But I was content with getting a Driver’s Permit and being a passenger for the most part. I stayed on campus while I went to LSU and when school was out, my parents drove me to my campus job and anywhere else that I needed to go. Well, by my senior year, my parents grew tired of being chauffeurs. So they bought my aunt’s used Toyota Tercel and told me that dorm life was over. However, the car had a stick shift. ERRRRRKKKKKK! Not only did I need to brush up on my driving skills, I had to learn how to drive a stick shift! OMG.

Coincidentally, my Daddy’s pickup truck and Hubby’s (who I was dating at the time) Ford Escort both had a standard transmission. I received very patient lessons from the two of them, and in no time I was doing it on my own. Although I haven’t driven a stick shift in almost 20 years, I know that I could if I had to. I still remember the basics. Like riding a bike. I also know that I could teach someone else how to do it. It’s a valuable skill to have.
