Has it really been a week since my last posting? My, how time flies when you’re not blog-writing. Anyway, today’s topic: my thing.
Now before you all break down into fits of uncontrolled sniggering, let me just explain that my thing is my superpower, that special and slightly useless ability that sets me aside from the unwashed masses.
My principal thing is the power to always know the correct time. Without having looked at a clock in hours, I can make an estimate of the time which is always correct to within 15 minutes, and is usually correct to 5.
My minor thing is the ability to turn off my blinking reflex. This makes me unbeatable in staring contests and slightly unnerving to hang out with.
H8’s thing is that he can roll his stomach muscles, an extremely disturbing thing to witness. And the delightful A. appears to have an uncanny ability to always pick the best thing on the menu.
There are also people who seem to know their way around without using a map, a compass and a GPS receiver, and who can uncannily find their way back to a place having been there only once. These people scare me as I myself have a severe locational handicap.
And so, at the risk of being obvious, I kindly ask you all to tell me about your things. And please try and keep the conversation in the comments going for a good few days so I can continue to be lazy and avoid posting for another week or so. Not that I don’t care for you all dearly but, you know, spring and all that…
