“I am Me. In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me. Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine, because I alone chose it.” – Virginia Satir
I’m not a handy guy. Nope. Don’t call me if there’s a leak, or a loose electrical doodad. My toolbox consists of a butter knife, a credit card, and a sledgehammer. I have no finesse at all when it comes to mechanical things. I have never even tried to open the hood of my car. If the air conditioning doesn’t work, I wait for winter. I have no carpentry skills. If the door to the bathroom rubs on the floor — that’s the way it is going to stay. My favorite Beatles song is “Let it Be.” I hum this as I notice all the things that need repair.
After high school, I agreed to take the aptitude test for the plumbers union. This was a sad day for all concerned. The results indicated that I should be able to fill a tub without assistance, but supervised when flushing a toilet.
Fortunately, I have other skills and strengths.
