It is my firm belief that we all progress at different points in life. Some learn to drive when they're 30, some graduate college at 16. Whatever, right? There are circumstances though, where it goes beyond "staying on your path", and becomes, well.....WTF.
u/noobpirate asked: What is one simple thing that you still can't do?
I can't instantly recall alphabetical order. I obviously know it, but even in my 30's I sometimes have to run through it in my head to make sure Q comes before R (for example).
It's a subtle difference.
I remember when I started school, we had to skip around the yard, but I was always told off because I was 'galloping' :(
Anyone can whistle (jk lol)Giphy
Whistle with my fingers in my mouth.
Can't whistle in general.
That wouldn't solve the initial problem, nope.
Food is important, yes.
Stop thinking about food. Apparently there are people out there for routinely forget to eat a meal, which is as mystifying a concept to me as walking on water.
Eating is like my favorite thing to do all day. I daydream about dinner at work. When we go out I mentally tally the places we could eat at (and even google them beforehand if I know we're going) to make sure I don't have any regrets about the place I picked.
I too cannot imagine forgetting. I'd have to be unconscious.
Wait....who are you?
Remember someone's name immediately after they introduce themselves.
Forgets again two minutes later
There should probably be a better solution than that.Giphy
Tie my shoes the grown up way. Bunny ears all day.
My ex always used to put on his already-tied shoes with a shoe horn instead of untying them. I thought he was lazy. Turns out he was 27 and couldn't tie laces. I think his mom tied them when he got new shoes and just hoped to hell they wouldn't come undone.
That's the easy way out.
Read my watch. I technically can do it but it takes me too long so I always look at my phone instead.
LMAO same, my cousin got me a fancy watch which I bring to parties or other fancy stuff and every half an hour i'll check it in case someone asks me what hour is it.
Don't go to Amsterdam.
Ride a bike.
Laughs in dutch
I once knew a guy that could ride a bike with no handlebars.
I can't trill my r's.
It worked for me at least.
This. I feel like I get along with people that I meet spontaneously (schoolmates, roommates, co-workers, etc.) really well and hang out with them often. But once we part ways (for example when we graduated high school) I never keep in touch. I don't know why, I just don't feel the need to.
