Yesterday my sister and I were talking about my last blog post, Please Pass the Yule. We talk about our blog posts a lot. And we often read each other’s stuff over the phone because we want feedback immediately. She kinda did a little flip-out maneuver when she read the part that said I was “a little jaded” that the Christians stole and bastardized Yule from the pagans and turned it into Christmas.

This is because some aspects of human nature are simply set in stone, until, that is, we evolve away from them. For example, humans communicate with each other. I bet you can think of more, but we will not go into it all here. So I now present to you my list of five skills that everyone should develop.
