On Friday, I saw the best post by Justine Harman in Marie Claire: 30 Things I’ll Never Know How to Do.
We all have those things we either can’t or won’t learn to do, right?
I’m sticking with my age, so here are 29 things I’ll never know how to do:
1. Wear white without spilling SOMETHING on it.
2. Make the right amount of pasta. I could feed our entire neighborhood.
3. Bake. Everything I try is a Pinterest fail.
4. Fix my hair in a cute hairstyle. I can straighten it, curl it, and put it in a ponytail. That’s it.
5. Slice an avocado.
6. Hold a baby. I can’t do it. I’m so awkward.
7. Understand football. Or basketball. Or soccer. Or sports.
8. Keep pasta sauce from exploding all over my stove… Even with a lid.
9. Fix a flat tire. I can’t.
10. Be patient. We all have our flaws.
11. Eat just one cookie.
12. Learn acronyms. OMG, WTF, and LOL I know… everything else confuses the hell out of me. Speak English.
13. Keep our house dust-free. I dust several times a week. Where does it come from!?!
14. Avoid the makeup aisle.
15. Avoid the shoe store.
16. Walk in big platform heels. I once wore a pair to dinner and lost my balance on the sidewalk… And landed on the hood of a car.
17. Take a selfie.
18. Drink decaf. I’m not insane.
19. Spend less than $100 in Target.
20. Spend less than $100 in Ulta.
21. Stop watching Friends, Sex and the City, and Gilmore Girls.
22. Prepare my own taxes. You can pay people to do it for you! Why suffer?
23. Nail art.
24. Keep our pantry, kitchen cabinets, and closets organized.
25. Go to the post office. It intimidates me. I make Jason or a friend mail packages and I’ve misplaced two books of stamps the past couple of months. They’re expensive. I can’t be trusted.
27. Properly cook meat. If it ain’t charred, it ain’t done (I know that’s not right).
28. Peel a hard-boiled egg. The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
For fun, here are five things I think we should ALL know how to do:
1. Cook. It doesn’t have to be a four-course meal. Start with a grilled cheese and work your way up. Eating out gets expensive. 2. Balance your checkbook/keep track of your finances. Crucial- especially in the age of security breaches. 3. Send a professional email or letter. Check your grammar and skip the emoticons. 4. Laundry. Follow the guidelines on the tag! 5. Show gratitude.
