survey! excellence

If you could excel at one thing (either that you currently are good at, or something you are totally not) like, were truly gifted/savant about this one thing, what would it be? Nothing supernatural, here, kids. Just like... could talk really fast like that guy in the Micro Machines commercial.

Mine would be:
1. DUH natural musical talent.

Distant second and third:
2. eidetic memory (not if it had to be at the cost of being socially competent!)
3. see why i want #2? i already forgot #3. oh wait: i think it was "to be really good with money/know how to invest/save"

This thought brought to you by ten minutes on the massage table this morning. Did I mention there is a little mobile over the table with spine bits hanging from it? I tried to tell them to replace that with pictures of dolphins. Because it's really easy to imagine that you're floating along and dolphins are nudging you from underneath when you lay there.

1. I’d like to be exceptionally healthy. That is no respiratory, immune or neurological problems.

If that doesn’t qualify then I wish I were a keener judge of character or a Superb communicator.

Ditto. I am (objectively) terrible at it, according to other people, but I sing pretty much all day long when I'm alone. It makes me feel so content.

Musical talent. At least you can play an insturment.

When I sing people pay me to shut up. And I can't play an insturment...not even the kazoo.

I want one of those seriously BIG (and on-key) singing voices. Like they should call me Big Mama something.

(In real life, I cannot sing at all. Which is sad.)

I'd have to agree with the musical talent thing. I can pick up most pieces of piano music and teach myself to play them. My hands are very skilled after 10 years of lessons. However, I can not hear a song and just play it. I have no natural "ear" for music. I also can not write my own stuff. Oh, and I can't sing worth a damn either. That would be nice too!

I'd like to have enough willpower to take a skill I already have (writing) and become better and better at the craft of it.

It would be so awesome to be one of those people who could pick up an instrument and play it and have everyone up and dancing.

Nothing supernatural, here, kids.
Damn, so I can't ask for, say, Jared Padalecki to show up at my house the next time I order a pizza?

I'm going to have to say that I'd like to excel at finding joy in life.
