1. social ability: DRINK BEER. as a belgian, one would assume that it's an ability i was born with but i'm sorry to admit that it's not so. until 2010, the only beers i drank were fruity girlie ones. i had to go to bolivia to acquire this great new superpower which, since then, has been more than useful (i also have to admit that i learnt how to eat fries with mayonnaise in 2009, in holland. it's a long story)
2. human ability: lie when needed, though i'm not really proud of it and it's made me feel really bad. i still have to improve in order not to feel guilty everytime i tell a lie
3. professional ability: celta - teach english to adults. although i still have to learn how to find better exemples when i want to illustrate the theory (better than: an orphan is a kid WHOSE parents are dead; a widow is a woman WHOSE husband is dead; sabe a mierda...); that's so baaad!
4. extraordinary ability: stay alive in vietnam in spite of my crappy eyesight and of the crazy traffic
i would like to add that if i could choose any superpower here in vietnam (as i was asked the other day), it would be to make people's motorbike explode everytime they're near to killing me because they drive on the wrong side of the street, because they jump a light and drive on the wrong side of the street (both combined, they like it), when they think that from 4.30 to 7pm, the pavement is for motorbikes and not for people anymore...
