I would love to be good at construction work. Any kind. There are more than a few repairs that need to be done to our house and our back deck, but we lack the funds to get it started. If I could do all that work myself, all I’d need to buy is the supplies. It would take a lot longer than if a crew of people were working on it, but at least you wouldn’t be paying for labor and supplies. I think I’d also like to be good at working on cars. I barely know how to put gas in one, much less change a tire, change the oil, or put in more washer fluid. I sometimes hate that I’m such a stereotypical girl in that regard. I have a lot of intellectual knowledge and skill, but hardly any practical. I’m half-afraid to live on my own because if something were to happen, I know I’d be utterly useless in a catastrophe.
Though if anyone needed a pumpkin swirl cheesecake, I’d be Johnny-on-the-spot.
