Nine Things I’ve Learned To Do:
1. Drink coffee black. It’s not preferred, but sometimes it’s necessary.
2. Stop on my bicycle without falling…most of the time.
3. Exercise (almost) daily. I hate it, but I do it and it makes me feel better about everything.
4. Google to find what I’m really looking for. I’m good at trying different combinations of words until I find what I need.
5. Write thank you notes. They’re really important to some people.
6. Fold towels to make them fit in our new bathroom shelves. It’s tricky, but I think I’ve got it.
7. Make some basic finger foods that everyone likes.
8. Make the perfect pitcher of Kool-aid. I have made approximately 8,632 pitchers of Kool-aid since I started working at the church, so this possibly makes me one of the world’s leading experts.
9. Drive dear Jenny crazy. 9 is such an uneven number–couldn’t I have just added one more? No. I like the un-evenness.
Nine Things I Haven’t Figured Out Yet:
1. Stick shifts. Dad tried. Jason tried. Never learned.
2. Whistling. I know–put your lips together and blow. It doesn’t work for me!
3. The correct way to slice a tomato for salads.
4. When it’s appropriate to shake hands and when it’s appropriate to just nod. I know Miss Manners has some gender based rules, but not everyone knows them. Also, it’s awkward when someone wants to kiss me on the cheek, because I don’t think our generation really does that.
5. Chess. I understand the basic rules, but I lack any strategy and never know what the good move to make is.
6. The guitar. But I probably need to try a little harder on that one.
7. Applying nail polish to the the fingernails on my right hand.
9. To wear my hair down and leave it alone. I always have a ponytail elastic on my wrist.
