Student Driver

Practice proceeds apace

Critter and Playuh came to Ro and Knight's with me for Mah Jongg night. They occupied themselves with video games and DVDs downstairs, while we played upstairs. We're playing faster, and tonight we actually finished early enough that Critter could legally drive home.

He didn't kill the engine once. He navigated the slow turn at the end of the court well, but still made the car shudder a bit getting into first each time, and still have a rather jackrabbit-y jerky shifting style. Considering his amount of experience however, I think he's coming along fine.

Tonight, he was brave enough to park in the garage, next to Flar's car. We have an extra wide garage, so it's not as big a deal, but it does show the next step up in confidence for him.

¹ There was a brief but mirthful interlude during game-play which started with my mention of blowing eggs, and kind of got worse from there.
