What skill / talent do you have that others may envy ?

Postby centimani » Sun Dec 16, 2012 19:19 pm

Mines lying :D
I can keep a straight face, i can appear sincere, i can tell you anything and you'll never know from my face. It can be a very useful tool.
It spawns from my days as an engineering administrator / buyer / controller.
20 guys all asking have you got this, have you done that, whats the situation with the other. You learn to tell people what they need to hear and sometimes buy yourself a bit of time...and more importantly, you don't let people know you actually forgot. :oops: :D :D

Trouble is, i coulda made that up :?: ...but i didnt.
Whats yours ?

I'm a fast runner. I'm not exceptionally fast over 1 particular distance, but I'm a good all-rounder and sure I could finish in the top 5% of runners in the 100m, 1,500m or marathon.

I still remember morse code (from the days when I used to send and receive it). No need for it nowadays though.
I can play a double bass and read music (grade 2) :oops:

I can wack the ends of my fingers against the palm of the same hand - I call it one-hand clapping
I can only do it with my right hand, just haven't got the flexability in my left hand.

Go on, try it :D
