All of us have that talent. You know, that little thang you do that makes folks say, "damn, I wish I could do that."

Then, there's that little, simple task(s) that even a blind, one-eyed drunk monkey could do, but sadly, you can not.

The inspiration for this thread just came to me as I was trying just now to start a small bonfire. I swear to God, I couldn't start a decent fire if you gave me a truckload of 3 year old cedar, a box of kitchen matches and a can of gasoline!

So, what are your talents and fails? Here's mine...

I'm a helluva cook, but I can't bake.

I can tear apart most any firearm out there, but I can't repair small engines or car engines.

I have patience with most people, even the stupid ones, but I'm super short with my family.

I'm a sinner saved by God's grace, but I can cuss like a trucker and tell some of the filthiest jokes you've ever heard. I'm talkin' ghastly!

I could probably go on and on, but I'll stop right there...for now. :respect:

I can start a fire, it’s always been easy for me, I can cook bacon and eggs, and sausage, and hamburgers, but I burn almost anything else I try to cook.
I can build almost anything out of wood, but I can’t weld for crap. I can fix almost anything in your house that breaks, except plumbing, I always make that worse.

I can make the best baked mac & cheese you've ever had.

I can recall from memory technical data for just about anything I work on (a practice I've learned over many years in my career), I seem to have a knack for retaining that kind of info.

I cannot mow or edge my lawn in a straight line if my life depended on it.

I cannot stop myself from overthinking every possible detail and outcome of any project I find in front of me. I could've written a book on how to install a new garage door opener before I replaced my first one a month ago!

I cannot make the switch from post it notes to digital notes, which makes it impossible to keep my office desk organized.

We're two of a kind with food. Plumbing really is the worst. I'm pretty handy with fine wood working and welding, but I can't frame structures without a headache of maths.

What really grinds my gears is I can ring a 10" gong all day at a mile but can't group a full glock mag in a standard target bullseye circle at 20 yards.

I'm great at most things but excel in hardly anything lol. I've got a long list of goods and not so goods.......and a pretty long list of skills that few know about, just because I don't want folks hitting me up for weekend work that I'll never say yes to lol. Don't mind helping someone out should the need arise though.

I can cook, bake and every once in awhile make some fantastic cinnamon rolls covered within and on top with pecans. I cn repair nearly everything around the house with the exception of the central air-I hate the high pressure line but can easily take care of the 220v. I am a Christian but somewhat of a curmudgeon due to family.
