You guys are funny!

I can drive really fast backwards in a perfect straight line... and scare the hell out of my husband. He doesn't understand that it is way too easy for me and my friend used to have a very small and long driveway.

I can parallel park with ease

I am double-jointed at the knee and can bend my leg so my foot hooks on my ribs

I can keep my fingers straight and only bend them at the knuckle closest to my finger nail.

When something is broken I can always find a way to make it work by using things around the house. (no not duct tape or glue)

I don't know, but most baking purists seem to be pretty firm about their convections. Maybe it's a sign?

All I know is I can't cook, or bake for that mater, worth a crap. But you already knew that. My aforementioned talentless confession supercedes me, no doubt. I'm so bereft of any domestic food preparation abilities, I frequently tell my s/o that, if she "goes before I do", I'll have to subsist on a main staple of frozen burritos, nuked in the nucrowave. The funny/sad thing is, every time I tell her that, she really thinks I'm only kidding. She don't know me very well.
