Do you have any talents? How about a strange or weird talent?

Since we have a bunch of new members on the forums, I thought it would be okay to get fresh answers to a previously asked topic.

You can answer anything you think, or others have told you is a talent of yours. For instance, an ability to be handle stressful situations with aplomb is a talent.

Here are the most recent similar discussions (including one of mine), but as I said, I'd like to see some of the new people's talents!

If you were in a talent competition, what would your talent be?
If you could gain an incredible talent overnight...
Everyone has that one, unique, special talent--what is yours?

I don't know if it's the strangest talent I have, but I can pick up things really well with my feet!

I have some talents, but will weigh in later, after we have more comments because I don't want to influence the types of answers. (And also because I don't want anyone to think I started this thread in an attempt to talk about myself/brag, lol!)

I can play music by ear after hearing it one time. I can also play music on instruments I've never used given about five minutes to work it out.

Writing. That's one area I excel. I've done nothing but that since EF went haywire.

Oh, I'm pretty talented at saying the F word too.

OMG! You are my twin. I do that too, I swear! I pick things up using the in-between of my toes! AWESOME that you can too! I love that. My partner thinks it's so strange. I do it all the time. Pencils, got it covered, t-shirts, check!

Can't wait to hear more of your talents. I know you have a whole list of them!

I have a few of them, lol!! Some were mentioned in your earlier post, but a few others:
--I 'find' things. Seriously, I do!! For example, my mother in law lost a small 1/8 carat onyx round earring somewhere in my yard. I walked around for about 4-5 minutes and was immediately drawn to it.

Another time a couple years ago, a friend of mine from high school and I were hanging out and she was wondering what had happened to ____, a health conscious, very buff and fitness motivated classmate. I had not seen or heard anything about him since 1988--graduation time. I just told her I thought he was probably dead from boredom and we laughed. But as soon as the words left my mouth I just had a feeling that I had found out where he was...a month later at our class reunion, we found out that he was murdered---the day before we brought him up. He lived on the east coast, I live in Montana.

Everywhere my hubby and I go I am always finding something good, unusual or lost by others. My eyes and feet are just drawn to wherever...

---I can put myself in other people's shoes and empathize with exactly what they feel/think/do. It has freaked a lot of my friends, family or acquaintances out! I do not even have to meet or know who they are talking about.

--I write both left and right handed. I write with my right hand and shoot a gun with my left arm/eye.

There are quite a few other little goofy things, but hey--they are mine!!

I think you are incredibly lucky to be able to do those things! Finding things like that is too cool! I think a lot of your success is from actually listening to your gut instinct, or whatever is guiding you! Many people override certain feelings as not rational.

The mentioning people who something bad has happened to, or some other event, is something I definitely relate to, as well as finding things (though not to as high a degree as your talent). I, too, have the empathetic thing down and I get similar reactions as you do from people who are not as in tune. May I ask if any of this is from pre- or post-crash? I am very intrigued if some or all of your talent arose, or increased after the accident!

@ Love Bites: I am in awe of anyone with your talent! I am a classically trained musician & would KILL to have your natural gifts! I would like to know if you have pursued any musical talent you have, or if it's just something you can do, but are not interested in?

@Kendra: Hey you, prehensile toe lady! My whole family, except for my father, can do the foot thing! We never even think about it, but it does come in "handy" hahahah! Now that I'm older, I have a whole new appreciation for not having to bend all the way over to pick things up! As they day, the getting down isn't the problem, it's the getting back up, lol! I'm delighted to see you around here, by the way. I know you're busy with your sister's new baby & writing, but I enjoy seeing you around here & reading your answers!

@stacylyn12: What does the "I agree" mean, exactly? Can't you tell us if you have a talent? I'm sure we would appreciate hearing more than just one word from you!

I have always 'found' things. Actually, my hubby and I were walking the dogs in the middle of the forest a couple days ago and I spotted a knife. I went to pick it up and then veered off the path and went down the draw a bit. And laying in the weeds, right in front of me and my pup was a $250 mobile police scanner....go figure!!! I have found money, knives, axes, a trailer hitch, gun clips, toys (kids), clothing, an old railroad lamp form the 1920's, road signs, cycle parts, car parts(a carb that fits my t5ruck worth $400!! last week), a rubber penis pencil topper, antiques, old stoves, etc. while walking the dogs. There is so much more but that is what comes to mind. OH--and five pot pipes!!! And an emerald man's ring....the list goes on.Just magnetic I guess, lol!!

Pre-car wreck and now.

That's definitely a great talent to have!

I can sense when the other shoe is going to fall. Maybe because I've had it happen enough times in my life that I can just spot the signs. A friend of ours recently went MIA and I knew that when we did hear from him he was going to tell us they lost the baby. That day we heard from him and that was his news for us. It sucks but I guess in a way it also lessens the blow. We still feel so badly for him.

There are other things but those are much more private.
