If I Were a Different Sort of Man,
I'd Be in Heaven

My oldest daughter (eight years old) surprised me with a question today as we drove around in the rain -- a question that, if I were a different sort of man, would have had me walking on air.

"Daddy, is it true that you only have to choke the clutch when your engine is cold?"

B2, stories of your daughters never fail to impress me. Did you tell her that there are summer days when the engine may not start and you'll want to choke it then as well.

Wow! She has a better grasp of engine mechanics than I do. Deeply, deeply impressed.
