I don’t have many special skills.
I have skills. I’m a good singer (one might say Karaoke star). I’m a decent painter. I make a mean perogy. But none of my skills were something I’d feel safe to call special, until now.
A couple of years ago I snapped off the fridge handle. After several disappointing days of checking for evidence of super strength development, I forgot about it. Until I ripped a handle off my bedroom drawers.
Just to be clear, the handle wasn’t loose and I didn’t use tools. It was me vs. an overstuffed drawer. We both lost.
The handle broke off in my hand which, having exerted considerable force in the failed attempt to open said drawer, accelerated rapidly into the wall. The damage looks irreparable (to the drawer not my hand or the wall which are bruised and unaffected respectively).
I’m not sure how yet, but I’m fairly certain this propensity for handle breakage is a useful and or marketable skill. Suggestions or how to monetize this are welcome.
