Until recently, my cup of coffee was just fine. I did not care if it were wanting in good enough amount of coffee or creamer, much less too sweet, yet knew that no one would want to have the drink but me. Well, I think my sister just nailed it down when she said that making a cup of coffee definitely sits at the top of my things-I-always-flub list.
I'm aware that it is not just my coffee-making ability that gives me loss of face (of course we're talking about the trivial ones here). There are a slew of such things that I've been striving to put an end to; I've fared well with some (fingers crossed), but seems to default on living without the others. It's not that they are actually a burden though, but I guess I'd be better off if I could just improve on them a little bit.
There's something in psychology that says that the first step to set right the things you badly do is by talking about them. But honestly, thinking about it now, there's a pricking of uncertainty in me that tells I might be wrong ; perhaps it's the other way around. Nonetheless, I'm still setting out to have this particular entry tackle my "shame list of 5," in a bid to, even if I might in fact be wrong, have this as my "first step." (Note: The coffee-making fluff counts as number one.)
2. I have always had a hard time with knots, i.e., tying and untying knots.
Making at least a passable knot is quite a chore for me, and undoing one takes me a minute or three; still and all, to me my work has always paled in comparison to a grade schooler's output.
3. I have two left feet when it comes to dancing. But I love D-A-N-C-I-N-G. Really! I just hope that I look funny when I dance and don't turn into an eyesore. Ha ha.
4. As a height-gifted person, I usually bump my head, elbows, knees, and feet on things at home and sometimes even outdoors. And I always blame myself for not minding that I'm tall and have long limbs. (Hey, I'm not bragging!). Yeah, I sometimes am a stumblebum.
5. Ask me to act or emote and I will surely botch that up. That's why I am all praises for those who are good at it.
Still need to add some more to this list, eh?
