Dude, millions of people can run marathons, pick rocketing stocks and write best-seller novels. But how many of those dudes can name all the US presidents in under 45 seconds? Oh, most of them? REGARDLESS. Here are a few more completely useless skills I'm always mildly surprised to remember I have.
Using chopsticks like an ace. This is really only impressive because my hands are big ol' clumsy bearpaws. I'd trade this one in immediately for hands that don't force glovemakers to "see what we have in the back room."
Predicting trends way too far in advance. A year and a half ago, everyone thought I was crazy for investing in structured hats, feather fascinators and fluorescent nail polish. Heads up? Once the economy turns back around, fringe will be back in a big way.
Sticking people with permanent nicknames. Too bad I can't seem to give myself one I like. No matter how often I ask my friends to call me "Ol' Rough and Ready" or "Napoleon of the Stump," for some reason, they never catch on.
Shooting a gun. Like Elvis Costello, my aim is true. Unlike Elvis Costello, I'm not secretly a jewel thief.
Fixing jams in copiers. Ohhh, that's why I'm a secretary.
These may never get me on America's Got Talent, but hey, at least next time I'm playing Truth or Dare, I won't have to resort to the ol' Molly Ringwald lipstick-in-cleave trick. What are you surprisingly good at, loves?
