So, Tuesday is “Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day“.
No, I don’t know who came up with it; all I know is that it’s sandwiched neatly between “National Espresso Day” and “National Parfait Day“. Since I love both Espresso and Parfait in equal measure and just couldn’t choose…I decided to split the difference and go with this one.
The theory, of course, is that we ALL have a unique talent and today is the annual celebration thereof. Now, I suppose what you choose to celebrate depends completely on your definition of “unique”. You could be double jointed. You may write all of your correspondence in perfect Iambic Pentameter. Perhaps you see dead people are the spitting image of Haley Joel Osment.
Whatever it is, I want you to wear your Unique Talent proudly on Tuesday, November 24, 2009!
(And, NATURALLY, I want you to comment here and tell us all what it is. Even if you have to make one up. Points will be awarded for creativity – the more outlandish* the better!)
*And by outlandish I mean right up to but not crossing the line of general decorum. We need not know how you may be able to shoot ping pong balls or what you can do with farm animals. ahem.
I’ll start it off. I can recite Abbott and Costello’s “Who’s On First” routine from memory – both parts, with proper voice inflection. (That one is actually true.)
Just to tie this completely random post in with the theme of this blog, I’ve slapped together a lil’ playlist of unique songs – could be unique titles, unique music, unique lyrics, but these songs are anything but boring. Enjoy and share YOUR “Unique Talent” with us.
Because seriously, if you don’t, I’m going to look like a total ass. And I’ll cry. Do you REALLY want that on your collective conscience?
I thought not.
(P.S. Yeah, I know I totally phoned this one in. Stifle yourself, Edith – I’ve got a Grandmother in Law visiting! Have some compassion – I’ll get a new Guest DJ up on Tuesday. )
