    What is your silliest talent/skill? (Keep it clean, please!)

    What goofy thing are you really good at that other people generally aren't or would consider bizarre or really clever?

    I can imitate a several voices pretty well, mainly cartoon and muppet voices, and a few actress voices like Meryl Streep. And I've been told I do a nicely convincing Carol Burnett "Tarzan" yell, too.

    My husband and son both said my ability to remember people.  I have several friends that believe I know everyone in town. My son says there isn't a room full of strangers anywhere that I  won't know  someone. It is  like the," mothers have eyes in the back of their head" fable.  I have met people I know in surprising places and I do look for people I know when I am out and about.

      Wow! That's so cool! I have trouble recognizing faces, let alone names, which is a very awkward social problem, especially among a group of friends/relatives you know well. You've got a lucky-good and useful talent!

    I have few talents in general, but my silliest talent is my ability to find small objects dropped on any floor, like finding a contact lens or earring back or anything on patterned carpeting (or any other surface) without the use of flashlights or special glasses. I think it's because I've done a lot of jigsaw puzzles throughout my life, but it could also/instead be because I do beadwork and am constantly dropping tiny seed beads and stuff on the floor/table.

    I also do a great impression of Gilbert Godfried, and can do voices for all of the stuffed animals and dolls that my sister and I had as kids. Oh--and Deeanna Troi (sp?) from Star Trek.

    One thing I do is pick up the accents of whomever I'm conversing with--after about a minute, I'm speaking in their accent (and I worry that I might offend someone someday). Russian, Indian, Spanish, French, British, Southern USA, East Coast USA (I was born there)... You name it, I speak your language within minutes of starting a conversation with you. I'm not sure if this is a talent/skill or a curse. Hahaha I revert back to my mostly-Midwestern accent (with a touch of East Coast) the second I'm speaking with someone else, however.

    Accurate tossing. I usually hit what I aim at, trash can, or husband if I am tossing something to him. I am very accurate...a talent that has gotten me...well...nothing really!!
