John Scalzi's Weekend Assignment

Weekend Assignment #101: Very Hidden Talents


Here's a fun and simple topic for this week's Weekend Assignment:

Weekend Assignment #101: Name a talent that you don't have that you wish you did. This can also include talents you have a little bit of, but wish you had more.

I'd love to play piano (although I wouldn't be willing to devote the time it takes to learn).  I wasn't going to do this assignment, simply because I don't do anything really well.  I've never been motivated to try to excel, which is probably why I sit here doing a weekend assignment instead of something that might change the world.  I wish I had more of EVERY talent I have.  I wish I cared enough about something to go ahead and try to do it well.  Alas, I'm lazy.  So I simply make do.

Extra credit: Do you have any completely useless talents?

Yes... I still chat occasionally in a chat room or two and know all the smilies and LOL's and such.  Totally a useless talent.

If you want to play, be sure and leave a link to your entry at "By The Way".

I guess it's how we view ourselves.  I don't see you as lazy or untalented.  I see a woman who loves life and who shares that love with others.  When you share a walk with the dogs, I feel like I'm walking with you.  I'd like to play the piano, too, but like you, I don't want to have to take a lot of time to do it well.  Alas . . .  Blessings, Penny  http://journals.aol.com/firestormkids04/FromHeretoThere

In reading your journal a while I was thinking you may have a talent in cooking. Paula

knowing all the smilies a pretty good talent in my opinion :)

I bet you are using your talents well; I bet they just are ones people might not recognize. Like I bet you have a great gift of encouragement and comfort.

I only have gone in a chat room a few times, well more than a few but I know all the computer lingo too, how sad is that.
