My body hurts. Now I wish I had a cushy automatic

Despite being a pom, I’m not usually whingy, but I’ve returned home from a spectacularly body-breaking capoeira class. 2.5 hours of using muscles that at best get just a mild prod every now and then. For those who don’t know what it is, it’s a Brazilian martial art. Think break-dancing meets floor gymnastics meets non-contact karate, and you’d be about there…except without the ghetto blaster. I am dreading going to bed because I know that tomorrow will be like millions of tiny munitions exploding in my muscles. So now is the time I want a softly sprung automatic. Even that horrid Rolls-Royce I tried a while ago would be better than the moderately sporty, manual-endowed Fiat Bravo T-Jet I’ll have to manhandle over the Harbour Bridge’s crumbling superstructure tomorrow morning.
