All My Life I had it Wrong

Okay, maybe not all my life. I mean I didn’t start tying my shoes until I was three or four. Still, that’s a substantial portion of my life I got it wrong. How do I know I was wrong? Because my shoe laces kept coming untied if they weren’t double-knotted or tucked inside my shoes.  Thankfully I have a know-it-all friend named TED who was willing to teach me how to tie my shoes correctly.

Want to learn too? The Video is about 6 minutes long.

Thing number two I was doing wrong? Drying my hands. I’m not even going to touch on how to wash your hands. Let’s face it, there are those among us who don’t even do that.  But for those who do care about such things as hygiene, you might be interested to learn that you too have been using paper towels  all wrong.

That’s it. Just two simple things to remember—Shake and fold. It’s not as easy as it seems to remember. Trust me. I fell easily back into my old ways but I’ll keep trying and eventually it will become a habit. Why? Because learning new things keeps the mind young.

Until next week.

    aren’t scientists supposed to be neglectful of everyday life tasks? Like wearing socks that don’t match or forgetting to put on their shoes and pants before leaving he house? On top of that add in being a mother, wife and writer and no wonder you have these problems.

    • Actually, I wear loafers (so no tying necessary) but I do wear socks that don’t match and as they tend to be colorful, most people notice and comment. I always tell them that I have another pair just like it at home:)
