Creating my happy life on the other side of fear.

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.
