Day 19--A Talent of Mine

Um, zero? I mean, I can do lots of things. Nothing that's going to win me any contests. I can sing, I can make up funny voices to go along with stories, I can string words together to form sentences and even paragraphs. But nothing that's going to make anyone--even me--think, "Whoa! Take that show on the road!"

But speaking of roads, I do have an uncanny ability to remember directions after being somewhere only once. Doesn't matter where I am--out in the country, another state, another country. I remember how to get where I need to be, even if it's months or years later.

Well, except for Venice. That place is nuts. I got so supremely lost there, alone, at night. But it was a cool kind of lost. I figured as long as I stayed on the island I'd get back to my hotel eventually.

That and I can remember nearly every word to every song I've ever heard. Mostly.

I'd not call these things talents, but odd personality quirks, or unnecessary life skills acquired by living too much in my own head.

The end.

  1. Bah. I don't believe it...zero talents. Running marathons? Um, that's some talent...whether perseverance or crazy good athletic composition...or both.
