Allie is going to kill me. But us journalists have to tell it like it is. No hiding from the truth. So I’m going to put this out there.
One of my lovely wife’s many amazing talents is that she can fit her fist in her mouth. Don’t think that’s a big deal? Go ahead. Try it. I can barely get one knuckle into my maw. But Allie? Yeah, she can pretty much get the whole fist in there.
Her family’s known this for years and it’s just one of those fun little talents you share with close friends or relatives in a goofy way. (Or if you’re stupid like me, you share it on a public blog.) But this isn’t the point of my post. The point is that my wife has been dethroned!
The other day, we were walking around and somehow mentioned putting a fist in your mouth. Ryan suddenly stopped where he was, opened his mouth wide and quickly shoved his entire fist right in there. He looked like a snake enjoying an afternoon snack.
It was the absolute ease and quickness of that whole thing that had us cracking up for the rest of the day.
So of course I had to take a photo for proof.
And because Ryan insisted, here’s a side view.
At a family dinner yesterday, Ryan showed off his newly discovered talent and we also learned that my niece Amanda is just as adept at it. Apparently this fist-swallowing technique is genetic.
What’s your wacky talent?
