Intelligence and resourcefulness
Grandas intelligence is really useful in this occassion. His old days as mechanic brings the much needed skills to hot wire a car, thus ensuring they survive a little longer. Moreover, this is all done without any proper tools. All granda did is tap into his experience and lets his hands do all the talking by successfully hotwiring a car. His intelligence and resourcefulness are there for readers to see. He sees a wire lying down, uses it as key to open a cars door and manages to start the engine.Experience breeds calmness
Like old wine, it gets better with age. Age really does matter in this chapter. Being relaxed and calm in a tense situation is a lot to ask from someone. However, Granda manages to keep his head cool and thinks a way to ensure their survival. Rory, however, being so young, is at times erratic. This comparison of age really matters. It is a classic young versus old debate and this time around, its the Granda with his calmness that successfully get them out of the trouble, even if it is temporary.Chapter 32
