Talents

After I wrote this post, my sister chastised me. She told me that instead of writing all the things I can't do, I should list the things I'm good at. What a good idea, I thought. I could call it 'The Shortest Post Ever'. Here are some things I can do:

1. I can read fast.
2. I can stay on a diet. If I want to.
3. I can make food out of almost nothing.

I really like this idea; if you want to, please make your own talent list in the comments!

1. I can freak out faster than a pit stop in the Indy 500.

2. I can nap better than anyone I know.

3. I can survive in chaos and absurdity without coming up for air for an unusually long time.

1. I can be late...to EVERYTHING!

2. I can spend (or waste??) an enormous amount of time on the computer.

3. I am an incredible list maker.

4. I can read fast too.

5. I can carry an amazing amount of things at once (this comes from my years of being a waitress and bartender!)

Thank you for this exercise. I now realize I am still very talented. :)

What a fun exercise!
1. I'm very good at spending lots of money that I don't even technically earn.

2. I too am good at spending (wasting) a lot of time on the computer.

3. I am pretty darn good at criticizing, though I am trying to become much much worse at it.
