Twitching your ears?

I don't often start a thread here, but this one just makes me feel as if I should, even though it's not very 'country', but I do feel it is very 'Human'...

As some of you know, I have a 6-year old Daughter...My wife is 3 years older than I, and I am 40 (that way I didn't tell ya her age, don'cha see)...

The question is:

How Prevalent Are Stupid Human Tricks In Your Family?

I can make my nose wiggle like a Bunny, and whistle at 110+ decibels (the advantage of precision instrumentation at work)...

The Wife can do her nose, and/or ears at will and independantly...She is also double-jointed in her hands and feet (oogies me right out!)...

I have a Sister that can walk on the outside of her toes (picture curling them all the way round and walking on the first knuckle)...

As happens with kids, they tend to be 'related' to both parents...Not only can 'The Girl' backdive into 10 foot water, she can do all OUR tricks, and one that neither of us can do individually, let alone collectively...Namely, she can 'Belly Dance'...Has no idea why, but she swears she 'invented' it...

I tell ya...Unless she has seen this on 'PBS KIDS' or 'Jeopardy', then I have no clue...

So what can you or your relatives do?

I've got a friend who is double jointed or something in his knees. He can turn his feet around backward to where his toes are pointing backward and his heels forward. He used to do this with both feet and walk with both feet pointing backwards in the local mall. It really freaked a lot of people out.

I always gave my Aunt Edna (recently deceased) credit for being absolutely loony. Well not always - only since she performed her favorite trick in about 1950: she'd poke a nail hole in an egg, take her shoes off, stand in a puddle, grab ahold of an electric fence and suck the raw egg dry. I never knew if it was the henshi or the shock treatment, but something had made her absolutely loony.

My middle son can whistle through his ears. No...I'm not kidding. He has permanent holes in his ear drums from having tubes in his ears as a kid, for hearing problems. He just plugs his nose and blows and his ears whistle.

Just imagine the look on my face when my son comes up behind me and says, "hey Mom, check this out." Then whistled through his ears. I 'bout fainted. Then I fell over laughing!

Not wanting to be a bragger, but I can pick my nose with a chaw of tobaccer in either jaw-not both!

"Hey y'all!...Watch this!..."

I didn't mean to imply that about your family's unusual abilities either, just that my inlaws can pull some of the dumbest stunts ever imagined.

I hear ya...    Posted 07-08-2003 at 08:04:11       [Reply]  [No Email]
I think we all have at least a couple people in the family that make us feel that way...

Lock any one of my kids in a padded room with two bowling balls, and they'll break one and lose the other one.

Lol Fawteen! Fred likes to say ours could tear up a ball bearing in a sand pile with a rubber hammer. Other than that they have no real talent or contortionist abilities. All sngle joints that only work in conventional ways. Jake however can drive my blood pressure up twenty points in sixty seconds or less without really trying. Does that count?

Doesn't count...    Posted 07-08-2003 at 04:08:01       [Reply]  [No Email]
He's your Kid...That's his job...
