My Useless Skill



When I was in Jr. High I figured out I could do mirror writing. I used to write notes to my friends ALL THE TIME. I would write them at night after I got home, during study hall. Trying to make them laugh or entertain them notes. I would write stupid poems, things like that. Then one time I was like "I should write this note backwards." and I just could. I told them they could put it in a mirror to read it. I don't know why I thought my friends wanted to go to such trouble to read a note, but I was still passing them out like they did.

Anyways, so this is my useless skill. This is a video of my useless skill in action with musical accompaniment. I don't think you would want to hear the garbage I was watching on TV.

And if you aren't into home movies of people writing. (Who isn't?! Reexamine your life if you aren't.) I scanned it.

"This is one of my totally useless skills. This and making a noise like a squirrel with my cheek. It helps me zero in life. It does give me a topic for my blog . . . so there's that."

you may be psychically related to India. She can write backwards and upside down. When she was in kindergarten she was bored with the work, so turned her notebook upside down, drew her pictures so that they appeared right side up.Blew her teacher's mind. She then moved up to writing continuously back and forth when composing a story or taking notes. It's kind of freaky, but you are in good company, DaVinci did this also, and I am told Einstien as well. It is a sign of Genius darling.....

Lizzie, I could tell that India was awesome! Since the first time I read your blog I could tell.

Becky, that does make it useful.

Gary, I hope someday I'm in a jam . . . perhaps kidnapped by Russian spies and my only escape . . . writing backwards really fast.
