Today I learned how to operate two new—or rather, two “old” modes of transportation. The first, obviously, was a horse. Being that it was in fact my first time riding, I think I did quite well; I got up in one try, didn’t fall off or get thrown, and managed to get down by myself without falling and killing myself. I can honestly say I quite enjoy horseback riding.
The second mode of transport was far less favorable in my opinion: a 1999 Volkswagen Beetle with standard transmission. Aunt Jan says I did real good for never having driven stick before, but I give it a great big fat “NO.” I’d much rather take the horse thank you very much.
