Day 26 of the 30 Day Blogging Challenge-My Hidden Talent

My Hidden Talent

I'm not sure I have any hidden talents...I pretty much make sure all that I do well is out there on display. I never had any popular "weird" talents like fashioning the cherry stem into a knot, or whistling the star spangled banner, or doing cartwheels. 

Any talents I had seemed to be deeply hidden by good reason and judgement. For example, when I was drinking I was an EXCELLENT dancer. I mean FANTASTIC! EPIC! STUNNING! I could have danced professionally. No, really! It's been a real disappointment that such a hidden talent is kept hidden when reason, judgement and lack of alcohol is applied. Seriously...I can't keep rhythm with a metronome without it! So that talent will have to lay undiscovered by anyone that didn't know me in my days of youth and indiscretion.  

My sense of comedic timing is another hidden talent. Unless you are my family. In which case you know ALL ABOUT IT! I'm rather well known for treating my family with one of my zingers...pretty much a fast ball wrapped in quick wit and dorkiness. Then I throw my head back and cackle like there is no tomorrow and then say "I crack myself up". That's when they start laughing....they say it's AT me...but I know it's truly WITH me...Right? I am after all supremely funny. Right?

I also believe that I have a hidden talent for cooking. I'm obsessed with food blogs and finding new and different recipes. My Pinterest board is Food Porn and I think I'm Paula Deen all planning meals and such. I am, however, a very poor direction-follower and don't care much for salt. So although I am certain that I am a great chef in the making, my family and victims may disagree. 

If you know of any hidden talents I have....could you let me know? I'd love to hear them!
