..where did you (l)earn yours?

saw a father teaching his son the art of grocery shopping the other day and i couldn't help but smile. he walked each isle, quizzing his son on everything from expiration dates to knowing the difference between items "on sale" vs a good deal.

i learned so much from my parents/grandparents about the skills needed for daily living in this world that it pains me to see so many people struggling to make it through simple task (ie: cooking, cleaning, repairs, shopping, managing a budget, etc.). feels like a lost art.

who taught you how to drive? change a tire? oil change?

who taught you how to sew? how to use power tools?

more importantly, what skills are you passing on to the next generation?

tell us your funny stories about adventures in daily living.
