… have any talent, what would it be?
By talent, I mean natural inclination or innate aptitude. Not a superpower (aka, being invisible or flying) or a skill (aka surfing or playing the violin). Personally, I wish I could pick up languages easily. I’ve taken six years of Spanish and it might as well have been one. I can’t even order food at Mexican restaurants. I lived in Thailand for five months and by the end of it, only had the vocabulary of a two year old Thai child. Now, of course, it’s all gone. The only Thai words I remember are “tourist”, “please”, “no”, and “taxi”. No matter how hard I try, whether it’s in the classroom or in full immersion, the words just don’t come. I’d love to be one of you people who just pick up new languages like it’s a walk in the park. You know who you are.
Speaking of Thailand, I would say it’s about time to share some pictures.
Back to the subject, though. What about you? What would you choose if you could rewrite your genetic predispositions?
