Yes, this is a post about feet

When I last talked to my friend Sarah a couple of weeks ago, she asked me if I had learned any tricks from Jake and Gabby. Jake and Gabby are the parrots that live where I am currently residing. I told Sarah that I had learned to eat peanuts with my feet, which is something Jake (pictured here) long ago mastered.

Actually, I was just funning. I suppose you could call it lying if you wanted to, although I seriously doubt my friend really believed I had learned to eat peanuts with my feet. I mean, I could probably do it if I had to. But I don’t have to use my feet for eating so I can’t see any worthwhile reason to learn.

A vast array of skills exist that I could acquire if only I had to, or desired to learn them. For instance, I don’t play the tuba but I could figure it out if I really wanted to do it. The same goes for the piano and guitar. In fact, I never learned to play any musical instrument with the exception of air guitar and a little bit of harmonica. One must admit that both are worthwhile skills to have if ever you find yourself sitting around a campfire on a cattle drive with a bunch of headbangers.

Whether I ever will learn to eat peanuts with my feet, play a tuba or piano or guitar, I can’t say. What I can say is never say never. Well, I mean that figuratively. You may say never all you want at any time you want. For that matter, you can eat peanuts with your feet. It won’t bother me. I see it being done all the time.
