Remember MacGyver? (some of the younger folks may need to look it up on YouTube)
MacGyver could do anything! He took everyday items and did the impossible with them. He once diffused a bomb with solomente un paperclip!
Sometimes hubby reminds me of MacGyver. The Mexican is very good at thinking outside of the box.
I think a lot of this is due to him having to be resourceful while growing up in Mexico. He has come up with many solutions that I never would have thought of.
When raised in the U.S., everything is so accessible. Everything is within easy reach. I remember telling hubby once that we needed to go to Home Depot and buy some pine straw for our flower beds.
"Why do you want to get it from Home Depot? We've got plenty right here," he responded.
Sure enough, hubby gathered pine straw from underneath the pine trees. We had more than enough to fill our flower beds.
The above story was just one small example of how hubby thinks outside of the box. I would have hopped in the car and driven to the store and bought pine straw, because where else would you get it... DUH!
He has many MacGyver moments as well.....
He has repaired numerous things in very creative ways.
Today, he had a MacGyver moment!
Our son has been begging for a kite. The Easter bunny brought him one, but it didn't last very long.
Son was upset and hubby told him not to worry, he would make him one. He walked over to a tree and broke off two branches. Came inside and grabbed a garbage bag. Got some thread and scissors out of his sewing kit and just like that, constructed a freakin' kite!
Am I lucky or what! I have my own personal MacGyver living with me.
All joking aside, I love this trait hubby possesses. I feel confident if some kind of natural disaster occurs, between my water and food storage and hubby's MacGyver skills..... we'll be okay.
