Most likely…

In about 1988, while playing one of those faddish trivial-pursuit era board games with family, I was unanimously voted “Most likely to sleep in a coffin just for the experience”.

Now, in this family, I may have just…met…my…match.


Know your strengths

Just a short little parable about knowing thine strengths.

If you know about fixing bikes, or licking slugs, or chopping wood, or say, touching up April fools day pictures – that’s great.

Don’t think that these wee tidbits of trivia somehow automatically entitle you to just go off the reservation when executing at mealtime.

He said to ‘wrap the yams in tinfoil’ and just throw them on the coals for about an hour!
Yes, he said “coals” and I’m telling you, coals have different properties for cooking than wood fires. You can’t just expect…
Psssssh – whatever, it’ll be fine; I’ve got it handled.

Surreptitiously, I reduced the total time on the wood fire to 45 minutes – no problem.


I can report that the spoonful in the middle is quite tasty.

Moral: We have partners, in life, for a reason – it is foolish to casually discount their strengths.
