I'm an expert


You may not suspect it by looking at me, but I'm actually an expert. And not only at one thing, oh no - at many things! You could go so far and call me a jack of all trades - especially these ones:
  • Talking about a person with that person being within earshot. That is a special skill I have honed since childhood. I have attempted many a time the art of talking about someone behind their back - only to realize that they were actually standing behind my back. To save everybody time, I should really just tell them straight away. I'm working on it. 
  • Picking on a scab until it leaves a scar. I don't mean to brag, but I'm a master at this. Acne scars, shaving accidents, scratches, abrasions - I can get scars out of any of them. It's my superpower!
  • Taking pictures of thin air. Well, I don't mean to take pictures of thin air. It just so happens in my attempts to capture our animals - mostly the dogs, and mostly the Corgi. They are just so damn fast! (Or I'm too damn slow?) 
  • See what I mean?
  • Inappropriate laughter. If you make the mistake of falling or farting in front of me, you will have to deal with me bursting out laughing. I can't help it (believe me, I tried). If someone is telling an embarrassing story, instead of nodding my head sympathetically (like you are supposed to do), I am the one in stitches, with tears running down my face. Please always remember: I am laughing with you, not at you. Okay?  
  • Forgetting names. It doesn't matter what kind of names: of people, books, movies, songs, authors, old teachers, actors, other people's pets - I can't remember any of them. Worst memory ever.  
  • Pinning stuff on Pinterest. I'm keeping up Pinterest like it's my job, and let's just say this: if I would get $1 for every pin, I'd be over $3000 richer.

What are you an expert at?

  1. I also master inappropriate laughter! Ever since I was younger- my friends used to get really mad at me!

  2. Oh my gosh talking about someone while they're in earshot...I'm definitely a pro at this! Additionally, that moment when a conversation is going extremely well, everyone's laughing, there's a lightness in the air, and smiles all around, and then someone makes a stupid comment that brings it all to a crashing halt? Yep, that's me. That's the beauty of blogging - you can edit, edit, edit until your content is socially appropriate! :)

  3. We have a code word my friends and I use at work in case the person we are talking about comes within earshot.
    I also am a master at forgetting names and inappropriate laughter! Hahaha

  4. Haha! Oh yes. As for me, I am an expert at saying awkward things. Put me in a social situation and I'll do/say something that I feel awkward about later. So silly.

  5. I can relate to forgetting names. I am good at remembering faces but names not so much. Trying to take pictures of animals is not always easy. Half the time the photos end up in a blur. And yes inappropriate laughter I'm guilty of as well.
