Friday Fantastic Four

We all wish we somehow were better or more complete people. Given that,


What four skills do you wish you had?


  1. I wanna sing.  All my life I've hummed along, or mumbled softly, or occasionally sang badly out loud.  i just wish I had pipes.

  2. I wanna dance, Dance DANCE!!!  My GF can dance.  Really dance. Well.  And umm I can't.  People tend to stare or occasionally laugh out loud when I dance.  I've taken lessons.  They went badly.  I need ability!

  3. I wish I could speak Spanish.  After English, more people speak Spanish in this hemisphere than any other language.  It would be cool to communicate with them.  Once again, I took Spanish in high school.  It went badly.

  4. I wish I could sit still. I know I annoy people in meetings.  I am horrible to sit next to on a plane.  I need to get up and walk around every 20 minutes or so.  How can I fix this????

Have a great weekend!

OK, well, I can sing and speak Spanish and I have to admit -- I like both. I make sure our oldest daughter knows how useful Spanish is. We have Spanish taught in our county schools starting in first grade.
For me, there's a handful of things. I wish I could write -- I look back at some things that I did a decade ago and I'm not really sure how I managed. I don't seem to have the patience or the focus to write long form on a regular basis anymore. Or maybe I never did, and since I started working regularly as a copy editor I've become more self-critical. But either way, focus is an issue.
I wish I were more of a businessman. There's so much more potential for these Web sites but I don't have the acumen to get it done.
I wish I sucked a little less at sports. Just a little. Don't have to be a stud. Just want to hold my own on more than the softball field.
And I mentioned concentration.
