I once heard the statement that men are like butcher knives and women are like Swiss Army knives.
A butcher knife is big and sharp. It's an effective tool and is good at doing one thing very well: chopping big hunks of meat.
A Swiss Army knife has lots of small knives in various sizes for different jobs. You could probably hack through a big hunk of meat with a Swiss Army knife, but it's going to take you a little more time. However, not only can you hack away at meat, you can also open a corked beverage, saw through small branches, file your nails, remove bottle caps, tighten screws, poke holes through leather, cut paper or fabric, tweeze splinters and pick food out of your teeth. And a lot more, I'm sure.
A Swiss Army knife isn't the most effective tool for a single job. It's the most effective tool for multiple, simultaneous jobs.
While I was away in St. George, visiting my parents, Robert was at home, being a butcher knife. He was very effective at one task. And it wasn't cooking, cleaning, buying groceries, taking out garbage or doing laundry. It was buying a car. He did a great job buying a car. (2008 Honda Odyssey)
And so today, I will be a Swiss Army knife.
And not just any Swiss Army knife. I'll be this Swiss Army knife.
