Small Talk Six - Wishful Talents

Since Saturday's are typically slow around the blogosphere, MomDot , came up with a great idea called Small Talk Six to have a quick, fun, intereactive meme for the weekends. Why not, one day I don't have to come up with something on my own, so I'll give it a whirl. Each Saturday for the remainder of the year they have already been planned out the themes, so all I have to do is post the question with answer...how easy is that?

This weeks meme is: 6 talents I wished I posessed....

1. I wish I could sew. I've always wanted to learn to sew. There are so many wonderful things I'd be able to do, like make curtains, table coverings, dresses, etc. I once even purchased a seweing machine, just never took the time to take lessons..oh well.

2. I wish I could speak in public without getting all wobbly in the knees. Toasmasters helps, but it's a work in progress. I admire talented people who are able to get up at the drop of a hat and speak without warning so clearly and articulately.

3. I wish I had the talent of patience to do more Chain Maille in my jewelry making. The finished product is so beautiful. I only do a couple of projects a year, because I'm not patient enough to do more. It's not something you see everywhere you go, so there is a empty niche for it here as well.

4. I wish I could cut mens hair! Having a son, I can honestly say I HATE going to the Barbers shop sitting and waiting for his turn. If I had clippers it would be an easy weekend task whenever he needed it.

5. I wish I could play the piano....again, LOL. I learned when I was younger, but totally forgot everything. The thought of just sitting at the piano in the evening playing lovely tunes seems so relaxing to me.

6. I wish I could speak another language fluently, preferrably Spanish. My day job calls for the language quite frequently. While I'm able to call upon the 4 years I had in college and high school, some days it's just not enough.

Those are my 6 wishes for the weekend, what are yours?

Unveiling,
Dee

I put public speaking on mine too. My husband is a natural in front of people. I've always admired him for that.

Dee said...

I wish I could play the piano too! I used to play an instrument when I was in high school, but never learned piano and I think after all these years, I've probably forgotten how to read sheet music as well. Great list of talents you put together!

I wish I could paint. I wish I were good at a sport. I wish I had the high metabolism that let me eat whatever I wanted. I wish I could travel the world even more than I have. I wish everyone I loved would stay well.
