Writing Prompt: Toot Your Horn
Most of us are excellent at being self-deprecating, and are not so good at the opposite. Tell us your favorite thing about yourself.
My favorite thing about myself is my ability to learn quickly. I was about 13 years old when I first began piano lessons. Within a year I was playing Fur Elise and Moonlight Sonata, two complex pieces that should have taken me several years to master. I began walking at six months old and was reading at four years old. I am a beast in the kitchen and can prepare a meal that would make you cry for joy and want to move in, draw my bath and bring me tea and crumpets tub side. Whatever I venture to learn, I turn into my kind of gold. I’m proud of myself and glad I have the ability to learn whatever is placed before me.
