i have a question... if you could be any flowering plant... what would you be?

i would be foxglove (digitalis-latin). though poisonous...it contains digitalis, what many of todays heart medications are derived from. foxglove can be incredably helpful, amazingly beautiful, but also totally lethal.

Grab the other lace and wrap it around the folded one (the bunny eared one) then grab it in the middle after pulling it around the already folded lace.

Bend that into a loop and pull it thru making a bow.

Is that understandable?



Quite good.

I would add one thing: call the first lace that is folded (and held between index finger and thumb) lace 1. After you wrap lace two around the folded lace 1, and bend lace 2 into a loop (with index finger and thumb), push the loop UNDER the wrapped around beginning of lace 2 (with your middle finger). Then, pull the loop through, making a bow.

Hehe me thinks you were on the wrong page baby blue. We are at page 20 of this thread now.

Lol tying a shoe lace... You know, I didn't learn how to tie my shoe lace until third grade. I swear, I didn't understand HOW to. People tried to explain, they showed it to me repeatedly, but I just had to have them do it for me. But one day, it was recess, and I was sitting on the bench and I noticed my shoe laces were untied. So, I plopped it up onto the bench and started fiddling. By the end of recess, my shoes were tied! But, to this day, I have never seen anyone else tie the way I do.

Hey, man, if it works, that's what counts. Here's hoping that you bring that attitude to many things in the world that no doubt need a new approach.

well I might be strange but I do not tie my shoe laces like everyone else with the bunny ear thing lol. My dad taught me how to tie mine becuase I was not getting it right until I was 6 years old, but here is how I do it. I make 2 I guess bunny ears and the I just fold them like I am making a knott and tada I have shoes tied lol XD. I still do it like that to this day.




My babies summer,winter and zypher

We might be as unsure of what he is doing in a video, as a young child is trying to follow directions that make little sense. The video would need to be in slow motion.

I'd rather see Justin try to put it into words and tell us what he does.
