Wow, I kind of fell of the Secret Blogger Club bandwagon there for a while. Whoops! But now I’m back, and I’m ready to join my friends Kels and Suzan and new co-host Kendall this month, as we link up to talk about things we’re awesome at. Since I’m not that creative, I’m totally stealing Kels’s “I don’t mean to brag, but…” format.
I don’t mean to brag, but… babies love me. Yeah, I know that’s a weird thing to lead with, but it’s on my mind because my friend Aimee just had a baby on Monday. I can’t wait to meet him! On a related note…
I don’t mean to brag, but… I have a REALLY high success rate at guessing the sex of unborn babies. The last 3 or 4 friends I’ve had who were pregnant, I have correctly guessed the sex of the baby before an ultrasound or birth. I should probably bet in more baby pools to make some money off this talent…
I don’t mean to brag, but… I have cute feet. Or at least, I used to until I started running. Now, they’ve got a lot more blisters and calluses. Although they’re still pretty nice as far as a runner’s feet go. They’re nicely shaped, I don’t have an awkwardly long second toe, and I have a cute tattoo. Also, I’ve never lost a toenail.
I don’t mean to brag, but… I’m a very fast reader. I can finish a Harry Potter sized novel in less than a day if I really want to. And I have. I once read the first three Harry Potter books in less than 48 hours.
I don’t mean to brag, but… I’m really good at unpicking knots. Random, I know. But I’ve been into jewelry since I was little, and little kids’ necklaces get really, really tangled. I got really good at fixing my own necklaces, and it’s developed into sort of a talent over the years. I’ve seriously never met a knot I couldn’t untangle, whether it’s in a necklace, rope, or Christmas lights.
And I think that’s where I’ll stop. One can only handle so many random Rae-factoids in a day.
What do you have to brag about today?
