Just one? Wink

One thing I'm really good at and love to do is sing. I'm also good enough to accompany myself on the piano, but I'm not stellar at the piano. By that I mean, I'm not concert pianist worthy, but I did manage to reach Grade 10 Royal Conservatory of Music. I much prefer playing and singing anything BUT classical though!

Though I have not been around horses for quite some time since I had children, I was a really good handler. I miss being called whenever there was a nasty stallion who was acting up in the breeding barn or was being a snot when teasing mares. And ground work was my forte. I miss that.

If you mean in the present tense then I would have to say that I ama great mom and wife. Not tryign to be cliche or anything, but it's a fact. Smile

Me too! However, a short time away from a piano is all it takes to get rusty, so I've learned. My ambition is to finish ARCT one day.:D

I'm really good at sudoku, I can say with some confidence.

I used to do those too, but you have to do them practically daily or you forget those silly words that (I believe) were only ever invented to be used in crosswords!;)

Agreed! There are many words that I only know because of cross words (like epee!)

I'm a really good copy editor.

Oh, and I'm really good at putting myself in other people's shoes. I know that sounds stupid but it comes up at work, in relationships, in friendships, in conflicts, and dare I say it, on the debate board as well. I think.

Very cool! Don't know many people who stick it out that far. I didn't actually take the Gr 10 exam though. Not fond of all the theory, but I did reach the level. A looooong time ago. I'd love to get my ARCT as well. That wont happen for another long time.

I'm pretty good at sports/fitness. I love to work out and learn and try new sports. I guess I'm good at being active Smile

I was voted Most Dependable for a lot of the years I was in public school in a class of about 250. If someone needs me, I'm there. Whether it's for advice, to listen, or to do a favor. But I also know when to say no so I don't get overwhelmed. I think it's a skill that has made me a better friend, daughter, mother, wife, and co-worker.

I'm really good at placing IV catheters and drawing blood in sick, debilitated, or teeny tiny animals.

I'm really good at organizing for other people Wink

Oh, and I have this odd talent of being able to remember what someone has previously ordered at a restaurant even if its been 5 years since we've been there. (completely think this talent is a waste of brain space)

I'm really good at names and faces-- and remembering people and their story....

And I make a mean chocolate chip cookie.

Oh man, I wish! I never forget a face, but what's bad about that is that I never, ever remember names. It's embarrassing sometimes when I see that person I recognize (but have no idea from where) and they approach me and I can't for the life of me remember their name (much LESS their story)!!!
