Things I suck at, according to my sister.
If you ask anyone who really knows me, they will tell you the thing I am best at in this entire world is loving my sister. Not just that I feel an abiding affection for her that is both present and nostalgic, empowering and protective. No, I love my sister in that open-palmed, all-encompassing, fearless, ridiculous way that only children and puppies love. I just never grew out of it.
And if you ask my sister the things I'm worst at in this entire world, here's what she'd say:
1. Time management.
2. Saying no.
3. Throwing shit away.
4. Putting shit where it belongs.
5. Keeping up with shit.
6. Allowing fictional characters to make incorrect decisions about their emotional well being.
7. Cooking. Excepting spaghetti.
8. Returning phone calls.
9. Keeping up with your phone in the first place.
She's right. I'm also really bad at wires, especially when there's like ten not color-coded ones that criss-cross between boxes and electronics and the wall.
