I can 'heel and toe' and 'double de-clutch' and I do so every day, but wish I had a super-charger, or a very good sound track! I've also found an ability to drink alcohol, without, ever, having a 'hang-over'!

Wow. No real talent?!

Pbbbt. :P



Yes, but a lady never gives away her secrets.

But I can tell you that I can cogitate without the aid of a safety net. The first time Sidney saw me do it, he couldn't speak for a week.

I see to have a knack for converting raw electricity into Seti credits.

Guess another tact will have to be tried, in the near future, in another thread.

I won a few talent contests in college with a fairly unique "talent". I am really, really, really good at reciting tongue twisters. I will not be posting any videos of me reciting tongue twisters because my best material results in some pretty profane language if one messes up. I never mess up, of course. Nevertheless, the best, most wicked tongue twisters should be recited only by trained professionals. No amateur linguists should EVER attempt such feats of daring unsupervised, especially if there are children present.

Think of the children! Will nobody think of the children???!!!

Oh.

Well, I'm not likely to put any American Idol winners out of work, but I certainly don't need a bushel basket to carry a tune. And I'm in the percussion section (coffee mug, thigh, and table top) of the Saturday Morning Cup of Jazz band.

And I am very good at operating and maintaining computer-controlled industrial machinery, although I've always thought that was more skill than talent. Ooooh, ooooh, I can teach others how to do it, too.

Humour is one of God's three great gifts, and a wonderful talent.

I am pleased to see that without direction the form decided on humour. I am sure no insult to you was intended.
As you can see from my own quote, this one aspect of human nature is alive and well here.

I play with astrology from time to time. I was giving a reading once when I slid trying to say "Your Uranus is in Pisces" Not only did I slip, I also inverted the words. So it came "Your P____ is in Uranus" This was for a celeb on a radio talk show.

Who was the entertainer that could back talkward while reciting the story of little Cinderfeller and the three Sistiuglers?
My grand kids always get a good kick out of this.
