I don't do cars. As in check oil or fluid or change tires.
I don't do taping - like around the edges when I paint.
I don't do yard work. At least not if I can help it.
I don't do grilling.
I don't fix things - like leaky pipes or clogged toilets or broken lights.
And I realize that some of you are reading this thinking "what a lightweight!!" or something similar, but let me explain..
I have 13 male cousins who all live in the greater Houston area and I only share them with 2 other girls (Amara doesn't count because she lives in Austin).
I have 4 Uncles.
Many guy friends.
Several incredibly capable girlfriends.
Perry - who likes to prove his manliness by doing shit around my house.
Alien - who is actually relatively handy.
Pa - who is a carpenter.
And Bean, who will do just about anything I ask him to.
So why the hell would I ever need to learn these things??
Yes, I realize that taping is ridiculously easy, but for some reason I do a craptastic job and everything I tape looks like shit. Plus it takes me years to tape a wall. So yeah, I could do it. Or - I could call Perry who does a much better job than I do in a quarter of the time.
Do you understand now??
It's not about being the helpless girl. Its about understanding my limits.
I know that I wouldn't do these things well, and I have many people around me who can do them better and faster and without breaking something - like their foot - so I leave these things to the experts, who almost all just happen to be men.
