another talent

I thought of another hidden talent. I can write backwards fairly well. I'm not going to say super well (yet); my s's still look like backward z's and numbers are really hard for some reason, but i'm working on all of that. But i can do it pretty quickly too. It's not hard. Try it. When you get in the flow of it, it's easy as pie. Don't let those b's and d's get you down either. You show them who's boss. Or only use them if you're writing the words "bid" or "bod," and maybe "bud" but only if you don't put a stem on that u, because those words are the same frontwards and backwards. This is also a good experience to learn what it's like for a lefty, always having to lift up their hand so they don't smudge the ink. Or i guess you could just try to write left-handed, which i'm also pretty good at, but only on dry-erase boards.

Here's one additional hidden talent you have: finding your hidden talents. Doesn't that make you feel special?

Yes, yes it does.

I used to write backwards and upside down when I was bored in classes. It's really fun in a bizarre way. I'm really good at twirling pencils, too (although I'm a bit rusty, now). BTW, you asked about my birthday - it was May 18. :0)

I've always wanted to be able to twirl pens/cils. I'm a bit jealous.
