Hidden Talent

Kat, Sarah, and I have collaborated to post a prompt-a-day in December. Check the #Reverb12 page for prompts and and take a look at the main page for the basic instructions on the project.

December 27: Hidden talent:  Do you have a hidden talent?  Dazzle us.

I am a serious person.


My talent has always been being the serious one. Playing the straight (wo)man. Remaining calm in a crisis.  Being prepared.  As my ex-husband would say: Semper Paratus!  Always prepared!  (This, from the man with the machete in his Jaguar.  You know, in case we had to fight our way through the bush of Fairfield County or something.)

I digress.

In private, and in the present day, semper paratus takes on new meaning in my house.



I always keep a spare pack of moustaches handy.  One never knows when she’ll need a disguise.


And I never pass up the opportunity to see if my face really will freeze that way.


What I am saying is that, given my many disguises and layers of funny faces and silly hats…perhaps my hidden talent is not being very serious at all.
