I usually try using my rather monotonous drive in to work as an opportunity to practice some heel-toe downshifting. I was actually becoming quite good at it, but my company recently decided that all employees (even keyboard jockeys like me) must wear ESD safety shoes. Going from my super thin converse hi tops, to these safety shoes is like taping 2x4s to the bottom of my feet and it has totally fucked up my driving ch'i. I miss timed just about every other downshift this morning.
