In that same grain of thought, if I could instantly learn something (like, Matrix style learning), I would pick something that would be of benefit to my family.
Sure, I'd love to instantly learn how to sing with perfect pitch - or any pitch at all, actually. And yes, mad piano skills so I could play all the songs would be super cool. But I consider those talents to be more for entertainment.
I'm thinking practical here. I'm a mother, after all.
So here are a few talents I would love to learn with just a click of a computer button...
1. Superior Martial Arts Skills - because, let's face it, what mom wouldn't want to have full confidence that she could protect her children from bad guys? I can imagine myself totally obliterating that arrogant kidnapper now... ahem.
Skip to 1:27 for the cool fighting part. I wanna be like her.
2. No-holds-barred Martha Stewart + Pinterest Craft Skills - can you even imagine? A craft for every holiday that ever existed. Halloween? Conquered! Christmas? Done and done! Valentine's? pfft. Bam! Every kid and their mothers gets a handmade gift. And every birthday would be perfectly decorated to the roof! My kids would so love me.
3. Out-of-thisworld Cooking Skills - like, GiaddaDeLaurentis+BobbyFlay+BarefootContessa+GuyFieri kind of cooking skills! - my family would love everything that I make. They would drool as soon as they walked in the door. People from all over would wish to come to my house for dinner. And my kids would never, ever say, "I'm hungry!" ever again - because there'd always be something good to eat!
So I'll stop at three.
What skill would you learn in an instant - if you could?
I'm linking up with Leslie's Coffee Chat Tuesday - even though it's already Thursday!
