Extend Your Wireless Network
But then again, I was daddy’s girl, and he’s mr. fix-it. I also grew up in a snowy area where, if you can’t maneuver your car out of a skid or get it out of a muddy patch, you’re guaranteed to have no car very soon.
And i’ll say now what I said then; it must have been some pretty colossal nerd who made up a list of 25 basic life skills for a man that includes four different computer skills ("Extend your wireless network - why would I even need to do that?) but doesn’t include anything to do with women.
The nerds must have invited Hemingway to the committee, though. Clean a bolt-action rifle? Why is that an essential man skill? I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to make it through the next 40 or 50 years without needing to clean a gun of any kind.
Fix a Bike Flat
I’ve done those (or something close enough). I’m willing to take a swing at the others. (I probably could fillet a fish without undue damage to me. Or frame a wall. Never had to clean a gun.)
I would agree with your list too. I can do most of that other list–but they aren’t the important ones. I do know my wife is way impressed that I can unsnap her bra with one hand–now that is a skill that is useful and important!
