Like peanut butter and jelly.
Today we went to our friends' house for a Legend of Zelda and knitting playdate. Saren was helping the youngest child to play Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, and I helped my friend learn how to knit. I don't think I've ever tried to teach anyone to knit before, but she caught on pretty quick, which is good because once I started, I realized I'm not all that great at explaining it. I don't think I really use knitting terminology in my own mind, instead saying "thingy" and "the stitch's butt." Very technical. So I found myself stammering because I couldn't think of how to describe certain things.
Zelda I'm good with though. I just take the controller and kick some possessed Goron ass. Though maybe that's not so helpful in the long run. If you give a child a dead mini-boss, you help him for one game, but if you show a child how to kill a mini-boss, you help him for a lifetime of games.
