Dear Readers

Sweets recently posted about party favourites. I realise that this is probably going to sound ever so slightly insane. But i've only recently discovered that something i am able to do is quite rare and very....well, weird.

The thing is i do this thing with my hand. If i make my fingers straight with the palm of my hand pointing downwards, my fingers all bend upward.....far upward. So what i decided to do, in order to set my mind at ease and find out if it is really so incredibly weird or not, is to post a picture of me straightening my fingers, and to ask your opinion.

Exhibit A:

Yes, my palm is pointing downward.

So tell me.....is this weird? Can you do it to?

Regards

Ruby

Dude, that's just plain freaky! Are you double-jointed?

Ruby said...

not really....i mean, i can sit in funny positions, and i've always been very stretchable and bendable, but i'm not really double jointed or anything.

sweets said...

Ruby said...

I know of other party tricks that you do, and it has nothing to do with you hands :-)

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Hahaha...I am sitting reading your blog and flexing my hand...hilarious!
I can sort-of do it...my fingers don't bend quite as much as yours do, but there's a definite lift!
Thanks Ruby...The Rubster just showed me I have even more weird qualities! LOL

Ruby said...

AK - he he.....yes yes yes:)

Blondie - I aim to please:)

I can do that. People have always thought it weird. Back in the corporal punishment days, i'd just bend my fingers as the cane came down and not feel a thing. You are not alone Ruby.

Glugster said...

Yip. Tried it too. My hand is as straight as a plank. So, tell me. Which other party tricks are Arkwive referring to?

Ruby said...

anon - thank goodness...somebody else is with me on this one;)

Glug - straight as a plank huh? Party tricks?? what party tricks?? I can't do anything else than the finger thing......*evil grin*

Rox said...

I also have that particular 'talent' - my thumbs are also a bit double jointed. Comes in handy during those post-tequila need to impress moments!

P.S. Love the nails!

Amy xxoo said...

I cant do it, but my sister can. Although we can both do this strange, double-jointed type thing with our elbows....

Ruby said...

rox - Ta for the compliment:)

amy - hmmm.....maybe we should start a meme so people can show all their really odd talents???
