I’m taking part in August’s NaBloPoMo. The purpose is to write a post every day, one related to the topic. This month’s theme is KNOW. Today’s writing prompt is: Everyone is an expert in something. Tell us three things you are an expert in.
That’s hard. I know a little about a lot of things, and a lot about several things. I don’t know that I’d consider myself an expert on anything. That being said, I can name at least three things that I either know quite a bit about, or can do quite well, if I do say so myself.
1) Sarcasm – I am one of the most sarcastic people you’d ever care to meet. It’s an art. Sometimes my sarcasm gets me into trouble. No, really, it does. Hard to believe, I know, especially for those who know me, but it’s true.
2) Grammar – My family and friends call me a Grammar Nazi. It’s a title I wear with pride. I loathe poor (or no) punctuation, improper tenses, misspelled words, people who interchange it’s and it’s; your and you’re; they’re, their, and there. I can’t count the number of times I’ve wanted to correct a friend’s Facebook status or tweet. To me, improper grammar is like nails on a chalkboard – highly irritating and completely unnecessary.
3) Making Chex Mix – Family and friends love my Chex Mix. I get requests for my Chex Mix. I learned to make Chex Mix from my mom. I refuse to use the microwave. The oven is the only way to go. The recipe on the cereal box is only a guideline. I use more, sometimes a lot more, of everything. And my Chex Mix is damn good, if I do say so myself.
What things are you damn good at?
