Q: Dad, what did you think of the "31 Things My Sons Should Be Able to Do Before They Move Out" list that was on

A: It was good, including things like sew a button, make reservations for two at a restarurant, return a purchase, unclog a toilet and iron a shirt, but it really boils down to what I've stressed since you were little: handle your business. All of the things on the list are things everyone should know to be sure, but if you learn early in life to do things yourself, the rest falls into place.
