Folding a fitted sheet, programming your dvd to record, reading a map, paying bills on time. We’ve all got that one life skill we just can’t master, no matter how hard we try. That task that seems too insurmountable to even begin to comprehend how to do it. You could be an engineer or an algorithmic genius or a beautician, or you could have an IQ of 150 but still not manage to figure out how to make frothy milk on the new-fangled coffee machine.
Just as an FYI, you should know that this post is sponsored by Nissan. But all opinions expressed by the author are 100% authentic and written in her own words.
It’s like our brains are too overloaded with trying to remember 27 different passwords or full with useless information like the names of all of the Kardashians to fit in any more stuff.
For me the life skills I don’t have include reverse parking. Actually scratch that, it’s reverse parking when I have passengers in the car that I can’t master. On my own I am amazing.
At times I’ll have pulled off what I think is a perfect parallel park and look around for a crowd applauding my moves with a golf clap. Never happens.
Which begs the question, If someone perfectly parallel parks in the woods and there’s no one around to see it, is it still a perfect park?
Well I’m happy to report it does and I finally got one on camera. I was test-driving the Nissan X-Trail, you can see what I think about it in the video below but let me just say, heated coffee cup warmers, and keep watching for my amazing (ahem) reverse park around the two-minute mark. Oh and my gorgeous 20-month-old daughter, Amelia, has a starring role.
