Life is too short to live ugly.
I am very good at directions and always have my north south bearings as if I am a hunting dog/homing pigeon. Useless talent really as I am neither...
Like a machine I will jump in to help a person or animal in danger without regard to self
I can rock your world in a game of hearts! M.
Jack of all trades, master of none.
Ya wanna do a parallel parking throwdown? I could even park like a boss in the UK! People used to stop and watch me. No one over there parallel parks, they just shoot into spaces. (see 4 weddings for examples)
i, too, am good at paralleling. thats reason #120 we are kindreds. other than that, i have an uncanny nack to remember savant-esque things. phone numbers, numbers someone told me (each number is a color in my head and i see the color pattern so i remember it)... weird. oh yeah - and name that tune stuff, good at that too!
Pigtown*Design - I lived two years in New Zealand and, funny enough, could parallel park even better on the opposite side of the road.So, yes, I accept your sha-llange. ;)
I'm a good baker, gratins to desserts. And I need to stop doing it so much.
I can parallel park park quite well too. I am oddly quite good at plumbing repairs but I gave them up in my wedding vows.
I, too, park in a parallel universe. My weirdest skill is remembering esoteric bits of information like someone's name, age (and a built in aging calculator), an internal unseen calculator that keeps track of personal fouls for both teams in basketball. Where I put my keys, not so much.
I'm good at that, too.(hopefully that's where B learned it!)Can't think of much else Im a natural at at the moment...a dull day. xo Nancy
I can fold a fitted sheet like nobody's business.
I'm only adequate at parallel parking, depends on the situation. I think my real strength is my tendency to remember people, faces/names, etc. It's kind of embarrassing and a little hurtful to my ego when people don't always remember me. I also know a lot of useless pop culture crap. Takes up way too much space in my brain. My husband and I often communicate solely in quotes from movies or Seinfeld.
I can type like the wind.
Count me in on being a master of parallel parking - on both sides of the road too! Me? I am the best organizer of stuff ever. The OCD really comes in handy here.
I have to say I read this, this morning, and had no answer. However, I thought of you when I parallel parked today. Cheers!
Good to know! I always get nervous about parallel parking because I do it so infrequently but damned if I don't get it in there perfectly. I'm a pretty good cook.
I'm pretty dern good at parallel parking as well. Also, baking delicious sugary treats, criticizing virtually every driver on the road, and I am also very good at cutting every floral stem the incorrect length for any vessel I wish to put them in.
I may or may not have described myself as "an excellent reverse parker - not an euphemism" in a dating profile I had active for 12 hours.
I always say parallel parking is my one true talent. HAH!
You all clearly street park far too much! I pick up the accent of the person I am talking to in about 30 seconds. I have to be careful people don't think I am making fun of them... It just happens automatically!
Also, Camilla - good one!
My Interior Life - You are my soul sister. Ditto on everything, except rather that quotes from Seinfeld, we converse in random song lyrics!Raina - but can you parallel park like a boss on the left side of the road from a right-driving (i.e. US) car? I live on a one-way street that for whatever reason the parking is on the left side of the road, not the right. Thankfully my apartment building has a parking lot where I park, as I am not good enough at parallel parking on the right, never mind the LEFT!
