The MRL Morning Show

Weekdays 6:00AM-10:00AM

Since I was a little girl, I have always been able to pick things up with my feet. I can vividly remember being as young as 7 or 8 and my mom making it a game for the two of us. She also has this “talent.” We started with socks and t-shirts and quickly graduated to items like cups and toys. I don’t have particularly long toes, but I can sure move them. I imagine that my time as a ballerina in my early years contributed to the strength in my feet. In dance class, we would sit on the floor, flexing and pointing our toes until they cramped.

This sounds funny, but as an adult, this talent is pretty useful. Especially when I was pregnant with both of my boys. Not being able to see or reach your feet during pregnancy is tricky for some people, but for me, it was a breeze. If I dropped anything on the floor, I could easily maneuver to get what seemed miles away. It also comes in handy when I am trying to annoy my husband; pulling his leg hair with my talons really seems to get his attention.

Of course, I have always considered this my hidden talent. Mainly because my husband has asked me to keep it hidden.
