Revelations, brothers and sisters! This week, I was brought up short at the end of the chain. Yes, indeed, the light of Mildly Bothersome Truth has glared into the Shed of Secrets that resides in the back yard of my mind. Consequently, there is a vexation upon my heart. Ladies and gentlemen, there are two things I cannot do.
I cannot sew on a button, and I cannot make a balloon animal. Specifically, a dog. I live in small shame at these revelations.
Why does this matter? Recently, I have encountered situations where possession of those particular skills would have served me well. In the case of buttons, it would save me some trouble. In the case of balloon animals, it would have made my Wee Lass all the happier. (sigh).
The buttons I can live without a little longer, but being able to make my daughter smile by fixing a balloon animal? Well, that would be the bees' knees.
Time to man up, I guess, and get that "Balloon Animals for Dummies" manual.
