    Room for Improvement

    What is a talent or ability that you see in others that you yourself either aren't very good at or can't do?

    I recent one I've noticed about myself is storytelling. I realized over Easter that my brother is great at telling stories. He could read the phonebook and it would leave you laughing. I, on the other hand, turn storytelling into some kind of painful, drawn-out dental procedure. I think if I don't tell every little detail about the circumstances, the story won't make sense or be any good. So of course that results in a very boring and painful to listen to story that is silently pleading to just let it die.

    Roller skating.

    Sounds like I'm being sarcastic but I'm dead serious. I can't roller skate to save my life.

    I used to be ok on four skates, but when I switched to blades, nope. I never could learn how to stop on either though, which is why I only ever skated in circles in our basement, haha.

    Lucky for you being able to roller skate is just about as useful as being able to ride a dinosaur.

    I'd be more concerned about you if you were really, really good at roller skating.

    The hardest part about rollerblading is telling your parents you're gay.

    I really suck at small talk. It just doesn't come to me naturally at all.

    I have a hard time paying attention to details.

    Indeed. It was at times a problem around sixth through maybe eighth grade, and once or twice in college, but fortunately as I get older it's really not an issue anymore.

    I can't ski either. That's more applicable.
