For the record, I didn't learn to swallow pills until I was almost 18 years old. Also, I can barely write legibly with my dominant hand.

I still can't swallow all pills, and even the medium sized ones I only learned to swallow when I was...24 or 25!

I can wiggle my nose up and down like a bunny! None of that "Bewitched/I'm actually moving my mouth from side to side" nose wiggling. :D

Hmm, I'm trying to do the bunny nose and I think I'm moving my entire mouth area. Does that count?

I can only reliably snap my fingers with my non-dominant hand; with my dominant hand, it's difficult. I can write fairly legibly with my non-dominant hand as long as I do it slowly.
8th-Mar-2010 07:29 pm (UTC)
I seem to be able to snap with either hand. That's pretty interesting that you do it with your non-dominant hand!

My handwriting is completely unreadable if I use my left hand. (And not so great with my right hand either.)

I can only drive stick shift in countries where they drive on the left hand side of the road. There's no way in the world I can change gears with my right hand - it's just unnatural (and also unfortunate since I now live in the US).

Also by "legibly" I mean very slowly and barely readable, but enough so that I can communicate my meaning.

I once rode a unicycle about 3 metres, but I'm guessing that does not count, as every other time I ever tried I fell on my arse.

I say "ice skate" loosely - it's more like stand on ice without falling too terribly.

By swallow pills, do you mean without any liquid?
9th-Mar-2010 02:06 am (UTC)
It can be with liquid -- any way at all. Until fairly recently, I could NOT swallow most pills. I even had to open capsules and pour the contents into applesauce. Yuck.

It's not on there, but I have a very talented tongue. I can do the taco, clover, and turn it sideways. I can also unwrap a starburst in my mouth. I can do the cherry thing though. :(
9th-Mar-2010 02:06 am (UTC)
Wow, that is pretty terrific! I can't even roll my tongue.
8th-Mar-2010 11:17 pm (UTC)
I don't remember when I finally learned to swallow pills, though I was still a kid. And it took Mom and Dad a long time to teach me how.
9th-Mar-2010 12:19 am (UTC)
Well let's see... I haven't chewed bubble gum for decades but when I did, yes, I could blow bubbles with it (that would, of course, splat on my face when they burst). I can belch on command, but 'empty' ones... I recently learnt how to swallow small pills but can't swallow large ones still. I used to be able to juggle two balls but could never quite manage three or more. Dunno about pig latin, but I can speak in fake russian - my dad could and then very suddenly I found I could too!!
9th-Mar-2010 02:07 am (UTC)
Oooh, fake Russian...I am intrigued.
9th-Mar-2010 12:41 am (UTC)
I can also roll my tongue, but didn't realize until I was eighteen. My family finds this hilarious.
9th-Mar-2010 12:49 am (UTC)
I've never tried to blow bubbles with gum.
9th-Mar-2010 02:07 am (UTC)
I've tried and tried and tried. I just don't get it.
9th-Mar-2010 01:03 am (UTC)
if i try to belch on command i feel like i'll accidentally throw up.
9th-Mar-2010 02:08 am (UTC)
Eeeee! I would not be trying then. :o
9th-Mar-2010 01:04 am (UTC)
I can write with both hands forwards and backwards. I also can wag with my little toes. I can flare my nostrils and move it down. I suck at swallowing pills though, I need to half them mostly< before I can swallow them,
9th-Mar-2010 02:08 am (UTC)
Wow, forwards and backwards -- that is truly impressive. My little toes will not move on command. You could be in a talent show!
9th-Mar-2010 01:06 am (UTC)
I swallow about 7 pills at a time every night. My friends think I'm super woman haha
9th-Mar-2010 02:09 am (UTC)
I think you're superwoman, too!!!
9th-Mar-2010 01:07 am (UTC)
oh and I don't have drivers license, therefore cant drive with manual , although i think it is still prevalent here .
