Random question Thursday



It's a two-fer this week, but only because I stiffed you last week and stuck you with a rant:

What odd, you're-not-quitting-your-day-job skill have you mastered?

And in what similar endeavor do you seek to become proficient?


PART ONE: I am extremely proud of the fact that I can whistle with my fingers. LOUD. Yes, folks, I can cat-call with the best of the construction crowd. I spent an entire summer, when I was 10 or so, perfecting these tweets so's I could win friends and influence people come fall when I would be attending a new school.

PART TWO: I would love to learn to perform yo-yo tricks. I'm not even sure why, seeing as I can barely get the blasted little thing to climb back up the string even one time after I've tossed it.

I can burp the alphabet two times in a row and say "Who's your daddy?" afterward, just by sucking air in to my stomach. Most people think when I tell them about it that I need to chug a beer or a pop beforehand, but I do it totally au natural.

I can flip a pen around my thumb. I can write upside down. Um, I mean, I stand in front of my student's desk and write on his paper that's facing him, but as I write the letters are upside down but right side up for him.

I want to be able to do crossovers when I jump rope.
