Hey Bangor. What’s A Skill You Have That You Could Teach Someone?
Last Friday before we left for the day, we got talking about unique skill sets. So we were wondering, what's a skill you have that you're good enough at to teach someone else? Is it cooking, fishing, playing guitar...?
JStew: It's strange, I have a few teachable skills under my belt, but in most of the cases where I've tried to show them to other people, I'm always reminded that I'm not that good a teacher. Learning new things is pretty awkward for me anyway, so teaching something feels ten times worse. However, if I had to choose, obviously I could teach a bit about drumming. Maybe not so much about reading music anymore, but if I had an afternoon, I could definitely have someone playing basic beats. I could probably also show a few things in the kitchen. I'm no world renowned chef, but I can hold my own and fix a decent meal, and likely show you how to do it as well. Anything beyond those two....meh, not much I show. Other than how to be a complete moron, but no one likely needs my help with that anytime soon.
Cori: I have learned, over the years, that while I am not the best cook, so to speak, I make 2 things that both help and protect people, and have shared those recipes and methods with others. About a decade ago, I came across a great recipe to make homemade bug repellant. I was skeptical at first, but after the first season of using it, I was a believer. And the second thing I can do is make a mean batch of elderberry syrup--for WAY cheaper than you could buy it at the store. Even though I feel like a witch, brewing a smelly potion when I make it--it's worked at my house to either shorten the duration or prevent altogether colds and flus from taking over the family. And I have taught dozens of people to make their own batches. That's pretty much it. I can help you boost your immune system and repel things. Those are my skills.
You guys have some pretty cool skills to share. Let's see if we can inspire other people. Let's share...
