Change the car oil. Well, yes, I can but it is so much easier to have it done by the car shop next door, and they usually do it for free, because they like me, and sometimes need a truck.

Tie a bowline, clove hitch, and a square knot. Nope, but once a friend taking algebra (in school) asked me for help, and I said “I don’t know anything about algebra”, and she replied that I do algebra all the time, and then she gave me examples, so maybe I can, Grandpa taught me some things.
