What do you think you'd be great at, despite never having tried it?

For me it's Curling

I always reckoned that if I tried it, I'd be a natural, and end up Captain of the team at the next Olympics.

For no real reason confusedgrin

What do you think you'd be brilliant at but can't seem to get round to actually doing?

I'd take my own eye out with an arrow grin

Hopefully my ex will be in the line of fire.
I fancy fencing too

NeverUseThisName Sat 25-Nov-17 11:23:16

Strictly, of course grin

Understatement Sat 25-Nov-17 11:32:13

Ooh fencing, yeah!

Being male.
Not that I want to be one but, if I was, I'd be amazing. (Like most men think they are grin)

I think I'd be a great high class prostitute, butler or Las Vegas showgirl.

Understatement Sat 25-Nov-17 11:43:12

Ooh change that's a range of jobs 😁

Amys I would hate to be a man. Imagine getting up in the morning and that being as good as you'll look all day.

Acting. Particularly in musical theatre, in the role of Nancy in Oliver!

The fact that I am twenty years too old, and can neither dance nor sing has no bearing on my steadfast belief that I would fucking rock in the role.

Oom-pa-pa, motherfuckers.

A musical theatre star, I just KNOW I'd be fabulous grin

A michelin-starred chef. I can cook but by no means really out of the world type of stuff but I have visions of just sprinkling a bit of this and a bit of that and bang! A dish to behold would be created. All whilst yelling at my underlings because anything less than perfection wouldn't be tolerated in my kitchen!

Free diving

Ballet dancer. I'd have to go back in time a bit but I'm sure I would be amazing. I have read all the Sadlers Wells books and Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfield so I'm an expert.

I was well on my way too, until my mother took me out of ballet age 5, goddamn her.

I have 3 - can I have 3?

1- Bob sleigh runner - am a biker and this would just be one step more - just awesome!

2 - Hang gliding - I've always wanted to leap off the side of a cliff/ mountain etc.

3 - Ski jumping - just imagine that run down the slope then up and out into space.....wahooo!

It seems I am a space and speed kinda gal! grin

Ice hockey. I can ice skate when I as 16 and I can play hockey when I was 16 so naturally I'd be awesome at the two combined.

BeeFarseer Sat 25-Nov-17 12:06:07

Stand-up comedian. I am funny as fuck and very quick-witted, so I just know I'd be able to deal with heckling. I have feck all desire to do stand-up comedy, but I would be awesome at it, I know it.

lemoncrisp Sat 25-Nov-17 12:14:49

Hang gliding. I think it would be instinctive to fly. Maybe just as well its unlikely I will ever try it in reality.

lljkk Sat 25-Nov-17 12:14:56

I think I might have been a swell mechanical engineer.

doctorcuntybollocks Sat 25-Nov-17 12:17:24

Brain surgery.

Love this thread!

I've always thought I would be a great rapper and also break dancer. I would kill an xfactor audition and would be great in any west end show!
People cringe when I sing but I reckon they are just jealous.

I also have always felt if I was skinny I would be STUNNING 😂😂

Kids TV presenter, without a doubt!

Understatement Sat 25-Nov-17 12:20:23

@Bee you could totally go to an open mic night and give that a shot!

doctor if I could go back in time I'd want to be a neurosurgeon. Saw a programme about one once and he just performed his miracles with the most unassuming grace.
