Liebchen talks about wanting to be ambidextrous and pursuing it as a goal. And reading this, the first thing I thought was, that's a cool spy skill. As in, if you were a spy, that would be a cool thing you might need to know/be able to do.
I think about these things. If I were a spy. Or, if I were a criminal. I watch a lot of movies and I read a lot of thrillers.* And the main characters always have mad skills. And multiple identities. And methods of disappearing should the need arise.
A spy/criminal skill I have: I can, and have, carded doors. That is, I can open a door without a key--just with a card. Not every door, not every lock but it is a skill I learned in college** and I've found use for it. *eyes dart* Legitimate use, of course.
Question du jour: What spy/criminal/ninja skills do you have or do you wish you had?
Bonus question: How do you keep a throwing star from making a hole in your pocket? (Or scrotum, should you have such a thing.)
Extra bonus question: Can our pass code be "Your monkey is dipping his banana in my Captain Crunch"?
* Correction: I used to read a lot of thrillers. Now, I'm doing well if I read two books a year. *shakes fist* Curse you, Blog Reader! What have you done to me?!
** See, Mum? And you thought all that tuition was a waste.
