What is something you wish you knew how to do?

Your monetary support of Writeropolis Industries is much appreciated. Anything you pop into my tip jar goes straight back into the growth of the network. You may find yourself name-dropped in an episode of Raconteuse Radio if you do!

I can’t tie a tie, on myself or on another person. This is something that I’ve tried to tackle over the years. I’ve used multiple YouTube videos. I’ve had people teach me in real life. Multiple times.

True, it’s rare that I would need it for day-to-day life. There’s a handful of instances where I would need to wear a tie, and no one I know wears them on the regular. But it’s something that I think everyone should know how to do. For some reason, I cannot get my hands to make sense of which part goes where and when.

Usually, when people attempt to teach me, I use my feminine wiles and whine about how I can’t tie a tie for shit and they “show” me how to do a quick Windsor. Then I simply loosen the knot a bit, slip it over my head, and tighten it as needed.

I refuse to wear clip-on ties though, no matter how casual the situation. I have some semblance for respecting fashion, thank you very much.

This is the easiest question of the month so far, ha!
