A day of firsts:

  • First time my girlfriend’s dad trusted me to drive his truck (Super Duty on the left).
  • First time teaching manual transmission (in that FoST right there).
  • First time my girlfriend has driven a manual car (she’s 24).

My girlfriend did pretty well once her mom shut up and quit back seat driving (and giving horrible advice; my girlfriend finally yelled at her). Aside from some of that bad advice, she did good. She only stalled twice and missed a gear once. Not bad for her first time.

The CX-5 is my girlfriend’s sister’s car. They both drive Mazdas.
