2nd Gear

Sometimes I like to start my car in second gear. I don’t know why, it’s just how I roll.

    my 2000 accord would do that without difficulty as well. It was just so light. Some heavy duty trucks are like that too (start in 2nd but not because they are light). With my fam’s construction trucks, 1st is too low unless some heavy equipment is being towed behind. It just depends on the gearing.

    You just love to feel that raw mechanical power, don’t you? Ah, you’re becoming more and more redneck everyday. Before I know it, you’ll be driving a jacked-up blazer convertible with a roll-bar and sheepskin seats.

    Don’t tease me with such wonderful visions! Is it orange? Is it orange?!?

    You can do it, but that’s generally called “lugging” the engine and is hard on the car. Wouldn’t do it. Not prudent!

    Of course, I know how much you love to do mechanical work on vehicles, so this’ll give you a chance to do more sooner.

    My first car was a 1981 Datsun Sentra, and I once accidentally started it in 4th gear (which was the top gear for that car). That’s when I realized that shifting gears on that car was really just an illusion to make me feel like I was accomplishing something.

    Sometimes I like to paint walls with bright colors. I don’t know why, it’s just how I roll.

    Sometimes I bake little fun-sized pastries while practicing my belly dancing. I don’t know why, it’s just how I roll.
