Writing Prompt: Teachable Moment

If I need to learn a skill. I feel it is important to read about it. If I am unable to make sense of it by reading.  I’d try to watch someone else do it.

The only problem I have with watching someone is sometimes they do it too quickly,I am left wondering how on earth did he do that.My experience with demonstration hasn’t been good. I am not the only one who has trouble. My husband bought a gadget, just by watching someone go through the process, when he came home and tried, things did not work out. This is what he said,”It looked so easy when she was showing it, now I can’t even do one thing with it.”

Hear someone describe it, is not going to work for me either. The best thing I think is to read it and do it myself.
