100 things


Mighty Girl just posted a list of 100 things that she thinks everyone should master. I took a gander at said list, and while I agree with a lot of them, I do have a few problems.

While I’m terrified of 3, horrible at 11, have no need for 15 or 44 anymore, I do think that I should patent my family method of 66. I also think 60 and 97 are too vague/esoteric to really define well. I do love a good 47 though. Oh, and for 100, do you think blanket forts count?
