And while I could cook a few items to feed myself, like most American boys, I could do little else.
Today, most folks I know never wax their cars and rarely wash them. Maybe once a year they have the car "detailed" and then let it go back to shit in short order. I am told it is "too much work" and "too much hassle" and even told by some that they "don't know how to wax a car" (!!!). I think the real reason is that we are so fat and worn out by the restaurant food that the intense workout in waxing a car (and it is a workout) is just too much for most of us.
