Do you prefer to have things done for you, or do you prefer to do them yourself?
There are things that I can do myself: shopping, taking pictures, writing, planning trips and being sarcastic.
Some things I would have to beg or hire someone to do. Although my boyfriend is super awesome, I cannot ask him to do certain things. His handiness is kind of limited. He is good with electronics and sound systems. Seriously, he might be the best sound guy in the tri-state area. Pick any tri-state area. I would guarantee that he is in the top five.
On the other hand, neither of us are good at building things. I really want a new bed. I think we could build it ourselves if we had a supervisor.
He knows people. Everywhere we go, he knows someone. When I say everywhere, I mean everywhere from restaurants to the store to comic book conventions and events in different cities. Plus, everyone likes him. I don’t know how he does it. I struggle to get more than five people to like me. He does that just on one trip to the grocery store.
The odds are good that he knows a guy with carpenter skills. I need to make this person our new BFF. I could buy some beer. I do know how to buy beer. So please if you are a carpenter in need of some new best friends, take pity on a couple of nice unhandy people.
