Skills I Lack

Riding a Unicycle.


Speaking most languages in the world.




Parallel parking.

Driving a stick shift.

Watercolor painting.

Swallowing swords.

Driving a motorcycle.

Using a jackhammer.


Preventing my face from showing what I really think.



Starting an IV.

 Piloting an airplane.

Swimming 110 miles in a row.

Taking off my nail polish in a civilized manner.

Baking pies from scratch.

Playing polo.

Playing tennis.

Playing volleyball.

Playing any sport involving a ball.

Burning cds.

Sticking out my tongue far enough to touch my nose.

Changing struts on a car.

Using Photoshop.

Doing the splits.

Playing the violin.

There. I feel highly unaccomplished right now. And now that you are all feeling so good about yourselves for being able to do things that I can't currently do--what skills don't you have? {insert evil grin}

I can't parallel park to save my life. It's not unusual for me to give up and have my passenger do it for me.

Erica said...

Ha! I don't even know how you thought of all these things?!? But, I feel just as unaccomplished as the only things on your list I CAN do is drive a stick shift car and parallel park, but those were necessities. And I think I might still be able to knit. I wish I could bake pies from scratch! And I most certainly can't let my face not show what I'm thinking. Boo hoo...

Moonofsilver said...

Hahaa, I can't do all those things...except for knitting. I think I can do that moderately well, perhaps :P If we ever meet I will attempt to teach you.

I don't usually think of things I can't do. Hmmmm I can't breathe underwater or grow a tail or fly?

My husband can ride a unicycle. We have a short one like in your pictures and tall one. I get a kick out of it every time. And I knit. It's so easy to learn! You should add it on a bucket list! :)

PS. Noticed you live in Mi.?! Me too.

I can't play sports without ducking when the ball comes my way. Childhood reflex.

Jamie said...

Speaking any foreign languages
Sports (all)
Pool playing

Suzanne said...

I cannot sing...well I can but no one wants to hear it.

I can't play baseball, but I think it is a silly sport anyhow.

I can't read or program PHP and I can't fix my imac to recognize my printer.

Those are just a few of the many many things I can't do.

You should try to bake a pie...they are easy : )

I can bake pies from scratch and start an IV...that's about all I've got on you in that list :)

Oh, and Photoshop Elements and burning CDs...sometimes

Caitlyn said...

Do you want to learn any of these skills?

It is possible with time and practice!

Which skill would you want to learn right away?

Lenya said...

Really Rachel *shaking my head in disbelief* None of the above? Now, you go and practice practice practice Girl, do you hear me?! Nah seriously, I can't do most of those things either. Hey what do you say? Shall we practice together? Starting with the airplane? I am first. OK?

have a nice day sweetie.

Well... if it makes you feel any better I can't do any of those things either!

Katie said...

i agree with so many of those! I like this idea for a post! I want to do one like it!

Anonymous said...

AHAHAHA!!! Love this! I am SO jealous that you have just gotten to TRY to ride a unicycle! I wanna try it!!!!!!

I suck at parallel parking and opening cans. And balancing. And walking. And breathing--especially in the fall and spring, I sneeze more than I breathe.

Out of everything on this list, I can only do two things: drive a manual and do the splits- and I haven't done either in at least three years. Don't feel bad!

Janna Renee said...

Haha I think we are all unaccomplished according to this list!

Cramer Coffee and Jesus said...

I cannot drive a stick shift either. Sometimes I think I'm the only person in the world with this problem.
