Just showed my daughter how to MacGyver a candle using a tampon. Evidently I’ve never shown her how to do many such things. We’ve never made a survival shelter out of sticks and leaves. We’ve never made a phone out of string and two tin cans. We never made a solar still with a sheet of plastic and we never sharpened popsicle sticks into a formidable weapon. Sure, I’ve taught her a great many things but I seem to have skipped the really useful ones. I’m afraid I’m going to have to admit it. I have utterly failed as a parent. Here’s my card back.
