Well, I Never!

Well, I Never…

There are some things I do quite well. I am a very good cook. I am quite comfortable giving a talk or making a presentation. I enjoyed being a nurse and believe I was a good one, but there are some things I am totally unable to do. I could never dance or do anything requiring grace or rhythm. I could take dance lessons forever and would only end up embarrassing myself and my teacher. I can carry a tune, but have absolutely no musical talent. I have dreams that one day I will sit down at a piano and music will flow from my fingertips. The only way that will ever happens is if possibly lightning strikes me and scrambles my neurons, rendering me a different person. Foreign language and math are Greek to me, pun intended. I don’t even attempt to keep a checkbook. It’s good to know what works and what doesn’t.
