Have you ever heard someone say that "Everyone is good at something"
I have come to the conclusion that my special talent is mediocrity.
Unless procrastinating at work is considered a talent - but I read way too many of y'alls blogs to think that I am any better at it than any of you. And if you are reading this, rather than writing it, you are already have more talents than me - because you are procrastinating AND feigning interest at the same time. Bravo, Reader! Way to multi-task.
I am amazingly average at a lot of things. I'm by no means an athlete - but I can normally at least keep up in the office flag football game. I play guitar and drums - but neither well enough to actually be IN a band. I can kinda draw, kinda write, every now and then I am funny and sometimes I get drunk and take off my pants at the bar (I DARE you to tell me that isn't a talent).
I'm going to be 25 in a month and a half - I think it is time I found what my talent in life is going to be (and quit taking off my pants at the bar). Without a talent how am I supposed to have the quarter-life crisis and give up my job to pursue my real talent? The only real skill I have established so far is forgetting the attachments on extremely important emails - and I can do that from the job I have now.
Other skills I have discovered:
Forgetting people's names
Planning lunch before 10am
Being a wingman
Talking about myself
Being the loudest clapper ever
Growing facial hair
Being taller than people shorter than me
Burning my eggs
Having a deeper voice than any other 170lb white kid in America (possibly North America)
Saying bands "sold out"
Throwing things with any form of accuracy
Not being right handed
Burning my mouth on pizza rolls
Faking like I know what people are talking about when they talk about cars
Anyone have anything interesting on their list*?
