Do you, or your significant other possess any unusual, unexpected skills? Mrs. Steerforth, besides knowing all sorts of medical stuff, is a top-notch plumber. As far as I know, she’s the best plumber in the area. If it’s plumbing, she can fix it. It’s a bit incongruous to actually see her doing plumbing, because she looks nothing like what you’d expect a plumber to look like, but she can stand with the best of them. We have the best plumbing that you could ever want. This came about because she got mad. She wanted the plumbing out in the barn a certain way for the horses, and the well for the barn fixed. She hired three or four different plumbers, and they couldn’t do it. So her Norman temper kicked in, she declared the situation ridiculous, and then she took a college course in plumbing, bought every plumbing book that’s considered worthwhile and studied every one, bought a first rate plumbing tool kit, and went to work. She fixed the well, the plumbing in the barn, all the plumbing in the house, put in new sinks, toilets, a big jet bathtub, a new shower, and now she’s talking that she thinks that we ought to have a pool. And she’ll probably do it. The first time that she walked into the plumbing supply place that she likes, the guys behind the counter were quietly amused and treated her like she probably didn’t know much. That was several years back. These days, they treat her like an expert and even ask her about plumbing problems with which they or their customers are struggling. If you stand there and listen to her explaining heavy duty plumbing stuff to men, in her pleasant accent, you start to wonder if you’ve entered the Twilight Zone. But they hang on her every word as she speaks, and no one gets that funny little smile on their face anymore. She gets respect. She’s never worked as a plumber, but she knows her stuff! Comparatively speaking, I’m boring. I can fly anything, fixed wing or rotary, and I can build boats, make sails, rig a boat, make guitars and tube amps to some degree, and start a horse under saddle. I’m also a very good marksman and a good archer. And I’ve caught fish with every single fly that I’ve ever tied. But that’s all nothing compared to Mrs. Steerforth’s astounding plumbing feat. If she decides to do something, there’s no stopping her, LOL! So, what are your or your significant other’s unexpected skills?
