It is Slice of Life time again! This week it's about cars! My first car was a gray '72 Toyota Corolla.
Maroon was the interior color. How I loved this little car I affectionately named Mousy!! I was already in college and studying nursing. This would be a great help to me to get to the hospitals to do the clinical experience I needed.
However, there was one very big problem with this car!! It had a manual transmission and I had no idea how to drive a stick shift. Ease off the clutch and give it some gas. That was what I was told. Easier said then done. At least that was my experience. I remember one time on the way to school I flooded the car, and there I was stalled in the middle of an intersection. Fortunately there was a cop behind me, who pushed me out of the intersection. Phew. After that I knew I needed to learn quickly. Fortunately with practice it became easy. I figured if I could learn anyone could!!
Please share a slice of you life, here.
