My friend Elsbeth (aka Elf, as she is known by her friends) posted this quote on her blog today:
A man should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently and die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
– Robert Heilein
I think I hit about 13 of the 21, and that was being generous.
What about you? (or your man)? How do you measure up?
