Question of the Day

What talent or pursuit did you think you excelled at in your younger years, but later realized you were sorely mistaken?

In Teenage Petulantland it was acting. Though I got rave reviews comparing me to Bob Denver of Gilligan's Island fame (scans available when I find them) in the local newspaper, at least with appearance and similarity of nose, acting and, in particular, musical theater only reached heights of grandness with the help of the director's concoction of whiskey, tea, lemon and honey to salvage my voice. That period only lasted for two summers and Charlie Brown and the Artful Dodger are best forgotten.
