We deposited a ready Wolfgang off at his second phase of driving school this morning. Him and the car.
He did the classroom portion, passed the written test, spent 3 lovely hours at the DMV to get his permit, now it's on to round 2: the "Skills Course", or as I adoringly call it, the "Crash Course".
He gets to learn crash avoidance, controlling a skid, the hand-to-hand feed, the slip-and-grip, all kinds of things over the next two fun filled days.
Our car is a manual transmission and I've been learning him the finer points of driving such a thing over the past few days. We pulled up amid a few wimpy minivans, some crossovers... some kid is in a Hummer. No worries.
Our Subaru Outback is ready to take them all on. Pardon the attitude, but recall that I just saw "Transformers 3".
As I pulled the car into the ready position for the start of class, I heard one of the instructors comment, "Op, we got us a clutch".
I handed the keys to Wolfgang, "From here on, the fight is yours...**"
