Welcome to Take One of August’s Secret Subject Swaps. This week, 12 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.
My subject is “If you could magically have a skill that you don’t currently have, what would it be and why?“ It was submitted by http://Bakinginatornado.com I LOVE getting the email prompts from Karen…but when I saw it was HER prompt…OMG I was in my glory…It was like getting a visit from Jackson Rathbone.
If only I could carry a tune…be able to break out into a full on songstress anywhere and anytime. YUP! Right now I can’t carry a tune…when Dino was an infant and toddler…he thought I had the best voice…now not so much. He has told me to stop singing and I can’t sing…*hmphs*
If only I could play an instrument….break out a drum set and go to town pounding and tapping away, pop out a guitar and start strumming, or even get out a cello and make fine music…but sadly I would probably not only destroy the instruments, I would thoroughly embarrass myself.
If only I could have mad ninja skills….whenever I wanted. Yes I said it and I am not taking it back. I want to race in and out of traffic, get to the store, fly through the isles, purchase my products, load them in the car, sneak in the house, put them away and sneak back out to Starbucks without anybody knowing what I just did. Normally I hate Starbucks by my DIVA in crime Kit introduced to me to peppermint mocha with soy milk and I am done for. Or better yet walk around our apartment without waking up or alerting Balboa or Anthony. Imagine being able to drink coffee on the couch while listening to a book on CD and crocheting. I’d be so quiet…you wouldn’t even know I was there.
If only I could speak fluent Italian…WHY? BECAUSE I WANT TO THAT’S WHY! I’m Italian and I want to speak it…Well I know a curse or two…but that’s not too helpful, is it? NOPE.
If only I could cook Italian Cuisine…Pasta Carbonara, Panzella Salad with Olive and Artichokes, Spaghetti with Clams and Muscles, Grilled Sicilian Swordfish, Grilled Octopus, Strawberry Tiramisu, Mini Key Lime Cheesecakes with Chocolate Crust. Of course I would need a kick a** kitchen…but that is on my bucket list…which you can read here.
Starting next Thursday I’ll be hosting an organization blog hop. No worries about being super organized to join…if that was the case, my blog would implode. Beginning, current, achieved, or failed organizations all invited. Both current or old posts encouraged…so come on by.
