  • Unusual Skills

    Do you have any unusual skills? They can be generally useful, or not worth much of anything except for showing them off.

    For example, I can juggle and ride a unicycle.

    Edit: I can't actually do both of these at once. I was content at the time with having learned how to ride the unicycle. Juggling while riding it is difficult.

    Also, there are a bunch of things in life that are easier than they look, but unicycling is not one of them. Fun, though.

    My youngest granddaughter has an amazing ability to burp the alphabet. Rumor is she learned it from yours truly.

      Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

        I have mastered the way of laziness in over 50 different forms. From the couch to the classroom, no one does it better than me.
        Also I only know how to swim on my back.

          I can begin a set of a la seconde turns, perform an axle in the middle, and land right back into my a la secondes.

          For reference:

          I've also gotten to the point that my quintuple pirouette was not a one-off.

          Still working on leg hold turns and illusions, although that's probably my fault for not practicing my splits every day.

              I can command vast hordes of ninja squirrel assassins. Not sure why since Sparko is clearly nuttier and CP is definitely more squirrely.

              I'm always still in trouble again

                  I can write upside down and backwards, in cursive.

                  And I can move my eyes independently from each other. At least partly.

                    Would the fact that I beat the original Super Mario Bros. when I was 3 years old count?

                    If not, then I have a ton of useless trivia stored in my head. I'm called "Cliff Clavin" by my family.

                      I am a terrific grandma.

                        I have helped over 50 people get keys out of their locked cars in my lifetime.

                          Cliff Clavin was known for always making his trivia up.

                            They never told me that.

                            I always back my stuff up when asked.
