It’s safe to say that I am talent-less. That’s not an exaggeration, as much as I wish it was. But, there is one thing I’m really good at that I take pride in. I’m excellent at memorizing the lyrics to songs.
When I was a kid my mom would say, “If you put as much effort into memorizing your History/Science/Math, etc facts as you put into memorizing songs you’d get better grades.” Which is totally true. I can memorize a song after hearing it 4-5 times, but ask me to remember formulas or other useless “educational” facts? Can’t do it. Useless facts, clearly have a special place in my brain, though. I guess that’s another talent 🙂
Anyway, I love music and I take pride in the fact that when pretty much any song comes on the radio (or in a bar or at a party) I know the words.
