1. I've never been stung by a bee (or wasp, or hornet, or any flying scary thing like that).
2. The only male thing I can do better than my husband is lead singing. When I was little, my dad taught me how to find the downbeat in any song, determine what the time signature was, and jump in directing at any point. This also means I can keep timing--1-2-3-4--in a song that has more interesting parts than just quarter notes.
After telling these two things to my husband, he came up with one more:
3. I can have a conversation and when I'm finished, I will have used 6 different languages. English, Japanese, Sign Language, French, Spanish, and German. I can't speak all 6 fluently (only English) but I know enough words in those other languages to insert whenever I forget the word (or phrase) in English.
EJ asked if I knew Latin. Yes, I know E pluribus unus. And that would be a little awkward to insert into a conversation. My husband said I know more Latin that I think, and for some reason, I knew which word was Latin that I never realized: cow. Turns out that's actually kinda a random thing. Not Latin at all. He said Latin words end in "s". The first thing I thought was, cows. Nope, still not Latin!
So, definitely not 30 things! Maybe when I'm 60 I can write a post "6 things you probably don't know about me."
Oh! #4: I don't normally like chocolate, unless it's for a special occasion. Or it's authentic Japanese chocolate. :-)
