Thursday Thirteen


Thirteen Things I Can't Do
1.I can't work on a computer when my eyes have been dilated (which is actually why I didn't blog last Friday.)
2. I can't pat my head and rub my tummy at the same time.
3. I can't sing the really high notes like Mariah Carey. If I try my voice just disappears. It is impossible for me.
4. I can't lie to my brother. (I try not to lie to anyone, but it is seriously not possible to lie to my brother, even if I'm joking around because he always gives me this goofy look, and I bust out laughing, which blows my cover.)
5. I can't reach really high things b/c I'm really short.
6. I can't put on makeup while I'm driving. (More power to those that can. If you do this, please make sure you can stay in your lane while you do so. If you can't stay in your lane, you are not talented enough to do this either!)
7. I can't drive with my knees. I think this also has to do with being short and that my legs aren't really long enough to do this. However, I'm also kinda scared to do this because I feel really out of control.
8. I can't watch a really gory movie without turning away from the screen several times.
9. I can't listen to opera music for extended periods of time. I know the people are talented, but I just can't stand listening to it.
10. I can't go into a store and buy whatever I want. (This isn't something I'd mind doing. I'm just financially challenged, so I can't do this.)
11. I can't be near my niece and nephew without giving them tons of hugs and kisses.
12. I can't touch foam rubber. It sends chills up and down my spine to do so. Yes, I know this is weird, but if you try to touch me with a piece of foam rubber, you better be prepared for a fight!
13. I can't play any instruments. Not even one. Not even a kazoo. It's sad really considering my brother can play every instrument known to man it seems. But such is life!
Well, those are the things I can't do. Leave a comment telling me a few things you can't do, and leave your link here, and I'll post you if you're playing along with the Thursday 13!

Does your brother know you can't lie to him? :) Just teasing...that's so funny! That's awesome to have a bond like that.
My TT is up!

Karen said...

I can't lie to my husband... not really anyway. a good thing- I suppose! my brother on the other hand... I can't reach things, either.

Kim said...

I wonder how many people read #2 and then tried to rub their tummy and pat their heads at the same time...

I'm pretty short too, so I can't drive with my knees (I only tried once) and I have a habit of jumping onto the counter to reach things high up.

my TT is up too...

EmilyRoseJewel said...

Me too, except #12, I am vertically and financially challenged as well! I can't lie to anyone really. My list is up!

The Shrone said...

Will you post 13 things that you can do? That would be a nice contrast! My TT is up!

twiga92 said...

Wow! You do 2 Thursday Thirteens?! I have trouble coming up with one list sometimes.

Warm Fuzzies said...

I am vertically challenged too! That is too funny...I've never thought about why I couldn't do all of those things before, just knew I couldn't because of my height limitations!

Cheers!

I can lie...I just dont like to. Funny thing, when I go shopping and spend more than I should have, daughter and I just call it my national secret...

Becky, Mom, Mommy, Hey you, said...

I can't lie to anyone close either..cause I can't look them in the eye if I do.

Ashley said...

ROFLOL so you have a foam rubberaphobia? I promise never to touch you with one of those foam rubber big fingers! ;)

Ardice said...

I can't sing high, medium or low notes, I'm musically challenged. I can't play any instruments either. I'm with you on a lot of these. This is a fun list.

Thanks for the visit. Have a wonderful evening. Be well...

Wystful1 said...

That is a difficult 'trick' -- I don't think I can do the pat head and rub tummy at the same time either.

My T 13 is up

Emily said...

PowersTwinB said...

When I was little my piano teacher used the phrase "pat your head while rubbing your tummy" and I went home and practiced for days. Now, I'm like a professional head patter tummy rubber. :)
