The Phantom Gear Stick

I’ve been driving on the US for a month now and finally, just today, I managed to undertake an entire car journey without my hand reaching out for a non-existent gear stick. My left leg fell into listless line about a week ago but my hand would not so kept reaching for the phantom gear stick – or stick shift as they say here. Now my left hand gets to be mostly indolent too.

  1. And here I am learning to drive a stick in our stupid island car… and I find myself occasionally climbing in to our minivan in the mainland garage and thinking I need to do something more to get the car started. I guess it is supposed to be good for our brain wiring to change things up but that doesn’t mean I have to like it. 😛
