The langauge thing isn't all that amazing - I was lucky to have three mother tongues
Right place, right family, right time, no?
Here's a weird fact:
I used to be able to roll a quarter down my tummy - flip it over and flip it over again.... kinda like a slinky - using just my abs.
Ofcourse, this was when I used to practice Shotokan
karate... and before I put on about 15 lbs :selfbonk:
My parents didn't let me watch TV when I was frowing up - I got to watch an hours worth of taped cartoons every Sunday. My parents kicked me out everyday to go out and play - or I could stay and read books.
Till this day, I don't watch TV as much - I prefer to read books
My parents tell me I was talking decent sentences by the time I was a year old and at 15 months, I was confidently negotiating staircases on two legs - dragging a pillow and my blanky around.
I was born, my hometown recieved massive unseasonal rainfall and eventually flooded - the highest recorded rainfall in 20 years. Everyone from the extended family who had come to see my Mother and the newborn were stuck for the next three days, cramped in our little house as they waited for the waters to receed.
Till this day, my friends blame me whenever there is unseasonal or inclement weather :chuckle
Another weird fact:
I can completely twist my tongue around on it's long axis. No, not just make a "U", roll-n-twist it around on it's axis. I can't wiggle my ears, but I can do the one-raised-eyebrow ala Johnny Bravo
