However, Justin regularly trolls youtube for good videos, and he showed me the video below of a little girl named Jackie Evancho. If you already have heard of her, then good for you. But if you haven't heard her sing, watch this video:
That is insane. Crazy insane. Howie creepily asks her in one of the clips I saw if she "swallowed an adult." I get what he's asking here, but perhaps he could have phrased differently....? Anyway, she's incredible and I'm so jealous... I've always wanted to be able to sing.
But she got me thinking - if I were to be a child prodigy, what would I have been prodigious at? I came up with the following:
AMOUNT OF TIME SPENT SLEEPING - My mom says I was probably the only child who would sleep until noon on Christmas Day if she let me.
AMOUNT OF FOOD THAT I COULD EAT - And it led to childhood obesity. Yay!
|I still look like that when I eat|
TIME SPENT DIGGING FOR GOLD - And then I wiped my finger on my bed.
LENGTH AND TONE OF BURP -I practiced my burps so that I could stretch them out and make them as loud as possible because my mom hated it. My dad still tells me he regrets teaching me how to burp on command.
That is all.
