Dear 100 Hour Board,
What's a unique thing your body can do?
For example, I can crack all of my knuckles on either hand as many times as I want to just by making a fist.
I can make my ribcage protrude very prominently, to the disgust of most any who beholds it. I also have very noticeable veins, which has given me the ability to ferret out nurses and phlebotomists, compelled as they are to tell me of my sanguine gift.
I can crack my left index finger by stretching it out and flexing it. None of my other fingers can do this.
Also, I can make my eyes look outward in different directions.
My immediate thought was that my thumbs and pinkies are double-jointed.
However, this trait isn't even unique on the Board since Alta can do the same thing (in fact, Alta's thumbs can go down farther than mine). Indeed, Alta shares the entire train of genetic oddities I thought of subsequent to this (rolling the tongue, second toe longer than the big toe, the left side of the body being bigger than the right)--this is the problem of writing with your sister, folks.
But luckily for you, I managed to think of a couple of things unique to me: I can wiggle my ears, and have ridiculously strong taste buds (it is perfectly normal for me to taste food anywhere from 2-24 hours after I consume it; my record is roughly 72 hours).
Dear Right Knuckle,
Um...the left side of my rib cage protrudes more than my right side?
-guppy of doom, who assumed her body was unique until she actually had to think about it
My body does this crazy thing where it can fall asleep in an uncomfortable desk in a bright classroom in front of 50 people in the middle of the day, but not in my comfy bed when it’s 1:30 am and it’s dark and I have to get up early the next morning.
Due to the fact that I am VERY weirdly proportioned, I can easily touch the ground when standing with my feet together and come very close to palming the ground. It might not sound like much, but that's what I've got: a long torso, long arms, and short little legs.
Now that Anathema has outed me as being a freak whose left side of the body is bigger than the right (which, by the way, only means that my left foot and hand are both slightly bigger than my right foot and hand, so it's not as bad as she made it sound), I feel this comic is fitting:
Thanks for giving us all the opportunity to share the weirdo things our bodies do.
