Body competitions... Really.

It took me an hour and a half to get home last night. It normally takes me 25 mins. Gotta LOVE Eskom's Load Shedding.

On the way home though, I stopped to get some ciggarettes *yes, the 'no smoking' is going well, obviously* and I found something I haven't seen in years (not that I've tried very hard to look.)
I found Wicks Bubble Gum. Well. I forgot I know how to blow bubbles! Wooohoooo!!

I popped my way into the house. I saw the man eyeing me out and I thought he was going to tell me how annoying that is.

Instead, he said: "I can't do that!"
"Can't do what?"
"Blow bubblegum bubbles."
"What? Sacriledge! You mister, never had a childhood."
"Well, I bet you can't do this!" he says and winked with each eye.
Of course, I tried and suddenly realised I can only wink with my right eye. I tried so hard to close my left eye and keep the right one open but I looked like some poor person with a twitch."
"OK fine!" I said feeling a bit defiant. "I bet you can't do this!" I placed my two index fingers in my mouth and whistled my "concert/wolf whistle."
"I can!" he said and whistled without the fingers.
"NO! You have to use your fingers!"

Well, we spent half an hour trying to figure out weird things we can do that the other can't.

It got me thinking about how strange we all truly are.

He can do the Mexican Wave with his stomach. I can't.
He can make fart noises under his armpits and I certainly can't.
He can raise both his eyebrows one at a time. I can only raise the left one.
I physically cannot bite my finger nails (or toe nails for that matter- not that I've tried. Oh dear.)

Um I have never tried to bite my toenails, but I thought I should be specific for all those with foot fetishes who may have got excited over my blog...a little TOO excited! LOL

Don't believe a word I write said...

Can you flare your nostrils? I can, but only by opening my eyes very wide...kind of like how I have to have my mouth open when I put on mascara.
