Of Useless Skills and Posts

Every now and then, Rodney, my teen son would show me some useless video someone shares on Facebook.

Take the following video for instance.

Me: How does this benefit anyone? It's a useless skill.

Rodney: I am sure some guy who loses his hands in an accident would find this helpful.

Maybe he has a point there. I guess this post is just as useless as the video but I am really blocked for something to write about. Sorry, pallies!

This week's cookies for St. Patty's Day.

Keep Calm and Carry On Linking Sunday


  1. I totally understand your frustration and your son's answer was brilliant! So, I thought to myself, do I waste my time and watch the video or not? Well, I watched the video and I probably would have concluded that it was a waste of time, but now I won't because of your son's comment. Maybe this is a skill that will come in "handy" for someone (pun intended!). You always make the prettiest cookies and that is quite a skill! I'll be posting my Picture Perfect blog hop later today if you want to join. Take care!

  2. That is a workout with putting the pants on :) Imagine doing that a few times, I'm thinking the calories burned could be enough to enjoy one of your deliciously cute cookies!


  3. I have to admit I laughed! Yes, there are a lot of useless videos out there, but if they're making the rounds it means it's making someone laugh, and sometimes that's what we need most. Keep writing! You never know when it might help someone!

  4. You are totally missing the point, pally. Videos like these are hilarious...not political, rude or offensive. I miss my kids being home to show me these sorts of things. Please tell Rodney to send me the links because I find these hilarious and entertaining.

  5. I saw that video on Facebook too and I admit I wasted a few minutes and watched it! lol

  6. I've seen this before and it just makes me laugh!

  7. I think the video is pretty funny!

    Happy St. Patty's Day coming up. Such cute doggies.

  8. This video is impressive! Especially love the little move he does at the end. Aaand your cookies are adorable. So nice to blog you!

  9. I have seen this video before, it is funny and totally useless, I always wonder how they decide on doing that and why it is so random isn't it #KCACOLS

  10. Those cookies are amazing!

  11. I ;ve seen this video and yes completely useless random thing but I do love your son's answer! Great way to see it! But I can appreciate the fun factor! :) #KCACOLS

  12. OMG I watched the video 3 times!! It is just hilarious. The whole post was funny actually. Your son's answer too. Brilliant! That guy has definitely a skill. I don't understand how he managed to do it. Great movements. Lovely cookies as always. Happy St Patrick's Day. Thanks so much for sharing this at #KCACOLS. I would love to see you again on Sunday! :-) x

  13. Our children are a continued source of enlightenment. ;)

  14. Amazing what comes from the mouths of our babes isn't it. Reminds me of the way nursery children put on their coats from a laying on the floor position!! Maybe, just maybe, this has fuelled some blog ideas? #KCACOLS

  15. Haha - yes probably pointless, but sometimes utterly pointless things are still entertaining! & love your son's answer! #KCACOLS
