How about it folks? My last several blog posts have been so serious, with a heavy emphasis on medical. This morning, while perusing some of my favorite bloggers I came across my dear friend Dr. Spo's recent blog post. It was titled "Spo Short-Comings" or things he hasn't or can't do.
We all have those lists. Here for your contemplation and amusement are some of my short comings (some of which are exact duplicates of Dr. Spo's shortcomings):
Throw a ball (football or baseball, I throw like a girl)
Whistle (it's true, gay men can't whistle)
Spell "architect" (which I had to look up just now) and other words like "occasional" - I have a mental block, all my life
Swing a baseball bat or hit a ball (yep, when I try, swing like a sissy)
Dribble a basketball (I can't run and dribble at the same time)
Run (seriously, I can't run. I can walk fast though)
Scream. Of all the things I can do like a girl, curiously I can't scream.
Experimented with drugs (does pot count?)
Had children (yes, a regret)
Have sexual relations with a woman (I tried years ago but couldn't rise to the occasion)
Run a 5K race (or 10K or any race. I can't run, remember?
I can't draw (I wish I could)
I can't play a piano (however, I can play a Sousaphone)

I can't speak a foreign language (except to greet my landscapers with an "Ola!" which never impresses them)
Drove a car in a city (like Philadelphia or Los Angeles) and I never will
Never sky dived (although given the opportunity many years ago, I chickened out)
Never been off continental North America (only foreign country Canada)
Never changed a flat tire (which I am very ashamed to admit)
Never wrote my autobiography (not too late but I keep putting it off, unsure whether or not to include ALL the salacious details)
Never waterskied (tried once and almost drowned, swallowing massive amounts of water much to the amusement of my friends in the speedboat dragging me mouth opening the water)

There are many more shortcomings of yours truly but I like to keep my blog postings short because I know my blog readers have other things to do today!
