DH taught me to drive a stick.  Best thing ever, my car now is a manual and I love it.

How fun! I would say I haven’t really taught him any real skill, but I’ve taught him to be more open minded. I’ve traveled the world, so he’s a lot more open to traveling places outside of the country. Also, flying standby and traveling is a skill in itself, so Ive taught him the ins and outs of that. He’s the pickiest eater and his family’s eating habits are boring and bad, but now he’ll try things and now loves spicy food! The boy never cooked rice until he got to college.. 

He’s taught me lots of things. How to water ski, flying a single engine plane (ironically he went to school for aviation). He teaches lifeguard classes on the side, and I’ve tagged along so many times that I’ve thought about getting certified to teach CPR too since I’ve got it down packed.

I taught my FI some sign language (I’m not fluent, but have a lot of deaf family members) and how to make guacamole haha. He has taught me how to change a tire and do an oil change 🙂

I too am teaching my FI how to care for and ride my horse! It’s hysterical. He’s only ever had a betta fish as a pet, and he was scared of my little 15h quarter horse when they first met and he was worried my dog wouldn’t like him. 

“They’re, uh, really big in real life.” 

“So you just…. pick their feet up and scrape them with that metal thing?” It’s called picking a hoof. But to hear a non-equestrian describe it is just hysterical. He’s now learned how to lead and is working on riding. Non equestrians describing most things horsey is hysterical. “So this belt holds the saddle on?” 

He’s gotten me into jogging and trail running with my dog. She loves him more than she loves me, now. My horse is still a momma’s boy though.

He wasn’t big on veggies when I first met him. He would put like 2 pieces of asparagus on his plate and now he loves it and requests it! Still can’t get him to try avocado/guac and he doesnt realize what he’s missing! His family is the type that is eternally living in chaos and don’t keep anything organized. He’s slowly starting to clean without me having to ask but he’s still not great on organizing things.

I always say men are like puppies, they can be trained!

BEEelegant :  I have taught him quite a few things, but the funniest one that comes to mind is he once asked if I would bring him home a “vanilla envelope”….I was dying laughing! I told him “It’s a MANILA envelope!!!” 🙂 He always thought it was vanilla. LOL

He has taught me a lot about sports and sports rules!

Feminism, rock climbing, and how to tolerate eating food off someone else’s plate. That last one has been my biggest error in judgement to date. I have always thought it’s nice to try each others dish when you go out for dinner, but now I have to hover over my plate and growl when he comes near 😂

younikkitome :  yes!! The veggie battle is so real! I can’t get my fiance to try guacamole either but he’s graduated to trying the green salsa at Tex-Mex places. Green and white foods are scary to him. No sour cream, guac, asparagus, broccoli- how do people live like this?!

Most recently that chicken fried steak is beef. Its not chicken. On the other hand chicken fried chicken is actually chicken. He still doesn’t really understand and it took him about 20 mins to come to some sort of grasp on the situation. He just kept saying “But if its steak why do they call it chicken???”

BEEelegant :  

“So they just chew on that straw? He’ll eat all that in a day?” No. Babe. It’s a round bale, it’s hay, and it lasts a few days with the herd. 

*picks up mane and tail comb and goes to brush horse’s body*  No. Babe. Wrong brush. 

“When do you brush his teeth?” *Facepalm*

He genuinely thought snorts were sneezes for a while and would consistently say ‘godblessyou, Simba!’ 

The smile on his face the first time I put him on was so adorable though. Bareback, at the beach. He was SO happy and not a bit afraid. That’s when I knew I was going to marry him. Lmao.

Of everything FH and I have learned through each other, I think the thing that blew his mind the most was women’s sizes.  “No no, for females, a 5 is smaller than a 4!”  “WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE UNIVERSE?!?!”  “Well, see, one is juniors, and one is – ”  “WHO BROKE THE UNIVERSE AND WHY?!?!”

And he?  Taught me to drink sake.  Properly.

BEEelegant :  A heard of six must be amazing!  I’d love to be able to teach him to do that stuff but I full board my one guy now, I stopped rough boarding when I got into my undergrad program. He can take off and put on blankets and he’s got the brushes down now, two years later. Lol!
