Just going to keep going
Onward till the end
Because there was no one else around
That moment when you’re the most knowledgeable in your family to help the dog deliver her first litter because you were the goat midwife. (Which also was a default, because the goat was due that weekend and you were the only person who couldn’t drive granny and the children into town for appointments. So that meant it was your job to watch and aid the goat if needed.)
There are just so many jobs that people become skilled in by simple virtue of the fact that there was no other person around and the job still had to be done.
