Honk!

Excuse me while I toot my own horn a bit. Hey, it's this week's assignment, ok?

My hidden talents include:
*I can take naps like a pro. At the drop of a hat. A lot of people have trouble napping in the middle of the day because there's so much else to do. Me? Um, not so much. I actually have trouble getting to sleep at night at times because my mind is so wired, but during the day. . ahhhh.

*Tossing things like pacifiers or snacks back to the carrier while driving and keeping eyes on road and one hand on wheel. I have perfected my technique over 2 kids and 2+ years.

*I have mad skills at collecting lots of shit. Piles, even. Very Important Shit that I NEED and Must Have in my Life. Everything has a pile, er, place.

*I can pop just about every joint in my body. I routinely twist my wrists and back; pull my thumbs and big toes; press fingers, roll neck ankles, and shoulder; stretch out knees, flex hips. It's fairly compulsive and not very pleasant or attractive. *sigh.

*I take quick showers. I don't get what all the fuss is about. . you get in, wash, rinse, get out. I have a system and am efficient: shampoo, rinse, conditioner in while I wash body and face, then rinse. done. If there's shaving, it's done quickly as well. No dilly-dallying.

4 tips left at the bar:

Ditto on the piles and the quick showers. Damn, I'm not going to be good at anything unique by tomorrow!!

Ooo, the ability to pop joints is a vital one, I feel. AND tossing necessary supplies into the backseat while driving. So key.

I'm with you on the showers too. But the joints? Noooooo! I can't. stand. to listen to it! Oh, and naps! Naps during the day are most excellent. I believe I'm a day napper too.

I instantly saw the nap/kids connection, because I too could nap without notice when M2 was little. She's asleep, I must sleep too. Bullshit thats the time to clean the house, I needed sleep....
