"You don’t know how to drive stick?" my boss asked.
"I learned a while ago, but I haven’t done it since," I said.
"Hop in the truck," she said. "You’re driving."
"But I don’t know what to do…" I said.
"You’ll learn," she said.
A few minutes later, there we were, stuck in the middle of the road, trying to take a left turn on a hill, traffic backing up behind me, horns honking all around, my boss laughing through tears and trying to show me what to do while I desperately searched for the right gear. All the while, this song from the soundtrack to The Fifth Element played in the background, a lovely and enchanting piece of music to guide me through the chaos.
That was the last time I drove stick.
