What is a skill that you’ve always wanted to have?
Hannah Carmichael – super spy extraordinaire – woke up with amnesia, but confusing skills. She can shoot a gun, has excellent reflexes and other puzzling skills. Similar to Jason Bourne, it’s a little unsettling to know that you got these skills somehow, but don’t remember how, or why.
Thinking about skills though, got me to thinking. If I could wake up tomorrow and have ANY skill I want, what would it be?
I thought a little about having a sensible skill, like excellent Maths skills, or a nose which can smell where money is buried in the couch, even an eidetic memory (or for those who don’t know what that means, ‘photographic’), but in the end I decided on something a little more exciting.
If I could wake up tomorrow with just one skill, it would be the ability to surf like a pro with no fear! I love the idea of surfing, but the one time I tried it, I fell flat on my face, my fear of sharks kept me out of deep water, and I gave up. I know, I know, surfing takes practice and blah, blah… but for me, it wasn’t worth the bother. Plus it doesn’t help that I am such a clumsy human being, that I think if I was to stand up long enough, I would end up crashing into a dolphin.
I live in Australia, so i’m close to the ocean, it’s just not something i’ve set time aside to pursue. So, waking up tomorrow with the ability already inside me, yeah, that would be pretty cool.
What’s a skill that you would like? If you could wake up tomorrow and just HAVE it, what would you choose? Let me know in the comments!
