Missed Opportunities to Learn
I was working on my car, checking the oil, checking the air in the tires. There is not much beyond this that I know how to do when it comes to cars. I’m not too savy when it comes to fixing stuff either. I typically try the “leave-it-alone-and-see-if-the-problem-goes-away” strategy. You would be surprised how often this actually works.
My Dad, on the otherhand, could fix anything. He was amazing. He could build stuff, fix cars and do electrical stuff as well. Unfortunately I did not pick this up from him.
I was thinking, if I had an hour with him once a week, in addition to enjoying his company again, I would ask him to teach me how to fix stuff, how to work on my car, how to do electrical work. Looking back, I took for granted all the knowledge my dad had.
