Do You Know How To…

Hey guys, a little something that I’ve been thinking about for a while that I’d thought I’d throw at you. While at the library a few weeks ago, my children and I were all on the computers. My 6 yr old (she’ll be 7 tomorrow, go Neva!) happened to be sitting next to me. While usually I concentrate on my own business at hand, I happened to glance over at her screen. Now, normally she’s doing the Nickelodoen thing, playing games or watching videos. Well, imagine my surprise when I looked over at her and saw this young lady on the screen with no shirt on dancing  around with no top on, showing folks how to design your own shirt! She was showing how you cut up the side of the shirt, make horizontal cuts and then tie the strips together so the sides of the shirt has holes!!! While the trend is unfamiliar, as my teenage girls have a few t-shirts of their own like that, I was just taken aback because I’m trying to figure out how the he!! did she happen upon that site and video!! Well, I figured out that part, when she logged on the computer, she must have hit the button to restore last session, so youtube popped up. And apparently she just clicked on any video that had been on the screen, because she surely did NOT type in “How to Design your T-shirt”! Of course I quickly directed her off that page and guided her to Nickelodeon, her familiar territy.

Now I find it amazing though that you can find instructions on ANYYTHING you need to know how to do. I’m talking about from A-Z, folks!! Here are some How to’s that I find amusing if not interesting…
