15 Things I'm Good At

Inspired by @joemurphy et al
  1. 1.
    Taboo
    I am so good at taboo that 3 separate times in my life when I have played taboo with groups that included men I had not previously met, those men subsequently asked me out (I sincerely believe this was based almost solely on my taboo performance)
  2. 2.
    Packing a suitcase
    I can fit a lot in and I also organize it well and plus I remember to bring all sorts of things that other people forget to pack
  3. 3.
    Critiquing peoples' baby name choices
    I'm so juddgy and I have so many more thoughts that you'd think was possible
  4. 4.
    Thoughtful gift giving
    I know a lot of people put this but I am good at remembering things people like and/or have mentioned offhandedly and incorporating them into really nice presents. I also hand make a lot of my gifts AND wrap them I unique ways.
  5. 5.
    Pottery
    I'm not a master potter or anything but I do ok
  6. 6.
    Reciting the entire first page of "Love song for J Alfred Prufrock" from memory
    Some reallllly good lines in there - "let us go then, you and I/when the evening is spread out against the sky/like a patient etherized upon a table"
  7. 7.
    Interior design
    I'd like to think so anyway
  8. 8.

    I've helped a lot of people select paint colors for their homes and I'm good at figuring out what will look good while also reflecting their personal style (even when it is not my own)
  13. 13.
    Being on time
    I value it and I'm good at it
