Brag Sheet

One of the things I'm most talented at is self-deprecation, but that's a drink for another day. The truth is, I've got a few things that I'm pretty good at when it comes down to it:

* Flirting - I admit it. I know how to flirt. That's not to say that I'm always successful with it, but I can generally gauge what'll push a guy's buttons. The eyes, the gesture, the subtle touch on the arm. I've got it down.

* Fruit selection - Without fail, I can select the best of the bunch - particularly watermelon and cantaloupe. To the point that I've been asked by strangers to pick fruit for them when they see my certainty about my own choice.

* Bargain hunting - I rarely ever pay full price for an item. I've got to really love it to cough up the big bucks. That being said, I'm remarkably talented at pulling gems off the sales rack - including the Max Azria top I recently snagged for $4.

* Photography - Okay, granted, some of the talent lies in the camera, and I'm lucky that my parents gifted me with a great one. But, there's something in the eye, too. In composition and timing. I'm no Annie Lebowitz, but I could give Peter Parker a run for his money.

* Laughing - I know this isn't really a talent, nor is it hidden. But I've noticed lately that there are some people who really can't laugh. It's like they don't know how to let go and let the laughter out, and I am certainly able to throw back my head and laugh from the belly when I'm amused.

* Killing television shows

* Music & Movies - I am almost savant-like in my ability to tell you the name and artist of a song or the actor and movie title. With music, it's not unusual for me to know the release date and time of year it came out.

* Shoes - I can rock some shoes, bitches.

6 tips left at the bar:

Quite an impressive list! We keep good company around here, that's for damn sure. Gotta serve the best fruit wedges in our fruity drinks, play good music, decorate with awesome photos, have enjoyable conversation and turn on the charm! You were made for this bar. . .

It's really too bad that they created IMDB because you could've made a fortune with that recall you have!

I'm just curious - is it something tangible about the fruit or just an intuition? I can't believe strangers have asked!

All awesome talents! And don't forget about your ability to pick a good wine. Is that related to the fruit, do you think?

If we were to steal the idea from Dooce and change our tag line periodically, I would totally vote for 'I can rock some shoes, bitches,' bitches!

I just had a flashback to the movie "When Harry Met Sally", to one of the scenes with those old couples who've been together for a long time. You remember the quote: "I know, the way you know about a good melon."

I wish I had that talent...

Oh, and I will now come to you for shoe advise.
