Instant Talents

I'm going to answer two questions from the book If today, because the first one is just too obvious. My answer is, I mean. I'd like to hear what yours is.

If you could suddenly possess an extraordinary talent in one of the arts, what would you like it to be?

Writing. Hands down.


If you could be instantly fluent in one other language that you currently do not read or speak, which would it be?

I'm thinking Spanish. I live in Texas and it would be so useful to be fluent in Spanish. While I would like to be able to pronounce French, especially when ordering in restaurants (like I go to so many fancy restaurants), I don't care much about speaking it since the opportunities would be rare and the French would make fun of my accent anyway.

What about you?



  1. Talent - Photography... I'd love to be able to take amazing photographs.

    Language? - Chinese - cause they're going to own us all soon.

  2. Singing- I used to be able to sing beautifully but lost that ability a few years back. *sad*

    Russian- just because I love it.

  3. Girl you already ARE a writer.

    I think I would sing. Like sang. Like blow.

    Spanish all the way.

  4. Talent...sewing...the rest of my family have the "I was born with a Singer" talent and I'm completely inept. I hate that.
    Language...Italian...I would love to speak Italian...don't ask me why, I haven't a clue...but sometimes in my dreams I speak it quite well...

  5. I'm with you, writing. Or perhaps, photography. Either way I'd be happy to gain some secure knowledge in either.

    Chinese. It's so much fun!

  7. Hi! I came over by way of SITS.

    I would also love to write. I used to all the time and then life caught up with me :)

    Languages - Spanish definitely. I want to travel to Puerto Rico more often (well, more than the once I've been there!) and it would come in useful!
