I am not particularly skilled. I am not beautiful, I have no artistic talent, no musical talent, no intellectual talent and very little athletic talent and basically no high level homemaking skills. Being here in Utah helps remind me of these facts everyday...
With that introduction my title must seem off because what accomplishments could I have? Well, they are few and probably not noteworthy but I have noticed that there are a few things I do way better than the people I usually spend all my time with. I have listed some. These are pretty much unique to ONLY ME. (yes, I put that in capitals to make sure you understood who is included in this list and who is not)
*I am so skilled at using utensils that I am not forced to hold my head over the plate to keep from spilling on myself.
*I do not eat my boogers, even as a last resort...
*I have the ability to sit quietly and do nothing. This is obviously a learned behavior that takes years to master.
*I can stand being bored.
*I can smell a poop diaper rooms away and don't ignore it. Again, this is not a skill everyone can possess but I have found if you work hard you can master it.
*I do not force self produced noxious gas on the household public. This takes a rare level of self control which has not been practiced in the "P" family on any level.
*I have the special talent of actually listening to people when they are talking to me.
*I have the special talent of remembering what a person said to me while I was listening to them talk to me.
*I have the unique ability to wear clothes at all times.
*I don't spit or drool while talking. Another obviously learned behavior that requires practice.
*I am capable of taking a bath or shower without splashing/spilling water.
*I can tell the difference between dirty clothes and clean clothes by both sight and smell.
*I can cut my own fingernails and toenails with any available clippers. Definitely an acquired skill.
*I don't freak out at the sight of blood and I act accordingly to the level of magnitude of the accident.
Well people...I feel better. I am special. I am unique and I have hidden talents!!
