My hidden talents.

Hallo meine Lieben,

hope you are all having a nice day! This week's Random Thursday topic is an interesting one like usual.  I just don't know if I can contribute that much. I am thinking about this for a while but I am not really sure what awesome hidden talents I have to reveal. 




I have weird thumbs.

Well, I am not sure if this counts as a talent but at least it is something that not everybody can do. I can dislocate my thumbs. A hundred times in a row.  They always jump back into their normal position. But it  looks weird and creepy. So it is nothing you can be proud of. 

I am the cat whisperer.

I have never met a cat that does not like me. In Germany I volunteered in an animal shelter and on my first day I visited the cat house and saw two cats and the woman who worked there told me that the cats never let anybody pet them. After half an hour one of them sat on my lap and the other one let me pet her ears.

I can remember numbers very well.

Well, except of phone numbers. I don't even remember my own. But I am good with prices. I remember how much I paid for tofu two weeks ago in a certain store. Or how much my favorite beer at the store was when it was on sale. I also know how much I paid for my driving license years ago. And how high the gas price was when I got my first car. 

Parking.

I am pretty good at reversing into a parking space.  I can also change the tires of my car. All alone. 

I am cursed.

I can mess up or destroy every electronic device I get into my hands. A pretty bad talent if you ask me.

I know who the killer is. 

When I watch a crime show I  know who the killer is. At least most of the time. And trust me, it does not make it less interesting. 




What are your hidden talents?
Have a lovely Thursday!

  1. I don't know if all cats like me, but most of them do - I think it's cos they know I like them so much! (That extends to pretty much all animals from my side. Though I'm pretty sure the tiger at Seigfried and Roy wanted to eat me.)
    I'm the same with prices! Not other numbers, just prices. And I always get extended warranties on electronic devices because they nearly always break *just* after the regular one runs out.
    I wouldn't say I always know who the killer is, but I usually have an idea. I am always impressed with a show when I don't! My mother is insane at this though. It got to the point where I'd just tell her not to speak during movies!

    1. I am sure all cats like you too! And I agree, I am pretty sure they can see how much we like them and that is why they like us too! Love the tiger story! :)) Glad he did not eat you!
      Cool that I am not the only one who remembers prices. :)
      And yeah, it impresses me too when I can't figure out who the killer is! It does not happen too much!

  4. you have some pretty awesome talents!

    I couldnt back into a stall even if the car drove itself haha. Seriously, I suck. My dad's a mechanic so you'd think I could change my own tire but I cant :( Gah I'm such a sissy girl haha.

    1. Haha, I am sure you are not that bad, Lin! And I guess you don't need to change your tires because your dad is a mechanic. :)

  6. Is it weird that I wish I had a thumb talent like yours?! I wish I were that good with cats. Alas, I'm not. :(

  7. Oh you are good - I NEVER know who the killer is. And careful with those thumbs, I used to be proud I could pop my jaw and it's caused all sorts of problems now ;)

    1. Yeah, I have heard it is not good to do it too often because it can cause problems so I try to avoid it as much as I can. Sorry your jaw caused so many problems!

  8. Ahh I didn't know that you volunteered in a pet shelter! So sweet!

    1. Thanks so much, Lissa! I know that you have so many more talents! You are the best artist for example! :)

  10. Haha, these are all interesting talents, except for the last 2. You're too smart, that's why you can figure out who the killer is! :p When we went to the movies to see Sixth Sense with a friend, in the middle of the movie, she told me she knew what was going on, haha.

    Hope you're having a great weekend, sweet Katrin! ;D

    1. Haha, I guess I am just lucky with the killers! :) See, I did not figure the Sixth Sense! :) I am not that good!
      Have a lovely weekend, sweet Miki!

    1. I really don't know how I do that. I mean, I don't have to touch my thumbs, I can just make them pop out.
      I don't even know my own phone number. haha. :)

  12. You definitely need to meet Molli, I'm sure he wouldn't want to leave your lap ever again :) So sweet that cats love you so much, it's probably because you love them so much :)
    I'm always amazed how similar we are! I'm the same with numbers and parking is no problem for me either.
    I'm not always right though when I'm guessing who the killer is.
    Hmm, my hidden talents? I'm not sure I even know the obvious ones ;)
    Maybe juggling it all when I always think I can't manage?
    Ich drücke Dich noch Mal gaaaanz fest :D
    Hab einen guten Start in die neue Woche!

      Have a lovely week! Ich drueck Dich ganz feste!
