I was just flipping through TV channels, and saw some tap dancing.

I actually was quite good at tap dancing (and other dance styles, and even gymnastics!) back in high school, and can still tap a bit. Sometimes to surprise kids, I'll do a few cartwheels or flips but I'm much better at tap.

I've played a few instruments (trumpet, clarinet, piano, guitar), but was best on the piano. Not very good, but acceptable.

I have a good wrist shot. I'm 5'5" and 135 pounds. But in hockey skates, I feel bigger!

What talent do you have that would surprise the rest of us?

I'm a musical theater junky: sing, dance, play instruments, sound engineer, lighting engineer, directing, music directing, board member..... don't know if that actually counts as surprising though

I can blow spit bubbles. Like 0.25 in. bubbles that float off my tongue. I have to be careful as I sometimes do this and don't think about it and they can float towards other people.

From 13 to 17 years old I acted and juggled at a rennaisance faire. I also do some magic so SWMBO often says she's going to start renting me out for kids parties. But I think she knows that I'd probably end up going a little postal in that type of environment...

+1 on juggling. I learned to juggle before I could throw a baseball. I think the appeal of juggling is timeless.

I can also beatbox a song's melody, drums, and lyrics at the same time with little to no practice.

I brew my own beer....oh crap. That doesn't make me special here does it?

Special talent....I've managed to work Technical Support for 6 years and haven't killed a single person.
