    Please make it interesting.  Feel free to delve into the depths of strangeness.  For instance, can you put your feet behind your head?  Can you play "chop sticks" with your nose?...

    I can make my tongue do a 3 leaf clover thingy. I have no gag reflex (not really a talent). I am very good cook. And I love to read aloud (especially to kids and they think I'm talented smile) and I think I'm good in front of a group.

    I can be a positive influence on my children, and teach them vital skills - like driving a car with manual transmission.

    I can play banjo, guitar, and taiko.

    Using appropriate machinery, I can make stuff to an accuracy of one ten thousandth of an inch.

    I am a minor legend in some circles for overhauling a high performance V8 engine from a Phase III GTHO in the loungeroom of a house.

    And colebabie is my new hubpages heroine smile

    I can drink Scotch until it's coming out of my ears and still walk a straight line. Although one vodka puts me in a coma.

    I can figure skate and do a double axel. Okay, well, I haven't done one in 20 years. But I used to be able to!

        Not that I'm comfortable doing it but I do have to be in the right frame of mind when I deal with difficult media.  I've had tough reporters put me in front of a camera and try to play gotcha with me but I haven't fallen for it (except for once early in my career).
