It is mother effing hot in Denver right now. I guess I can't complain because at least its a dry heat. Or that's what people say right? Whatever. It's still freaking hot. I went to the elementary school and did my squats and sprints and what not after work and I was honestly just going through the motions tonight, but at least I got it done. Then I came home and half-assed dinner, some bland chicken and bell peppers, but the risotto was delicious.
Why does it always have to be the risotto that's delicious?
Story of my life.
So I'm watching America's Got Talent. Complete waste of time but what else am I going to do on a Monday night? Something productive, you say? Yeah right.
Anyway, some of these people have talent. Some have amazing talents. Some have crappy talents and should get new talents. But at least they're trying to have talent. I really liked the Father/Son combo who basically did handstands on each others hands. Straight arms too! That takes some amazing upper body strength. The guys who danced to the song with their pecs were pretty hilarious too.
But it made me start thinking - do I have any talents?
I mean, yeah, I have things I'm good at. I think I'm fairly smart, I was always good at school. I'm pretty good at my job. I know a damn lot about health and nutrition (nevermind if it shows or not). I am a fast reader. I like cake. But those aren't talents; they're just things about me.
I can't play guitar. I certainly can't sing. I'm not the dog whisperer and I suck at handstands.
I guess not everyone can be a superstar though, and honestly, I'm okay without having some fantastic talent. In fact, I think I'd hate to be able to do something that made everybody look at me. That would mean I'd have to brush my hair every single day.
So do you have any talents? Do you wish you did?
