Stupid Human Tricks by Mum Revised

As promised, I did another vlog. That is two in two months. WHAT?!

Get your jazz hands ready. You’re going to need them.


BTW: Did you happen to notice I am in a new book? Check out the sidebar for Feisty After 45–The Best Blogs from Midlife Women. Although I am not a fan of admitting I am midlife, I am a fan of being in a book.


  1. I think that last one is amazingly impressive. You have a little pixie who lives underneath your tongue and ties things for you. That must be it. There can be no other logical explanation.

  2. You should have included jazz hands in your impressive repertoire of tricks. Naming all fifty states is pretty impressive, though. I can only name three Canadian provinces. But every Canadian I’ve ever met is impressed that I even know Canada has provinces.

    I know it seems like we set the bar kind of low south of the border.

    • True, jazz hands is an artform. I can also name the provinces and territories in alpha order, but with only 13, not as impressive. It is an SHT (stupid human trick) that you knew they were provinces, and you know three of them. So, jazz hands to you. (BTW: I think I messed up West Virginia and Wisconsin, I feel shame).

  3. Nice vlog! It was a fun surprise to hear you say my name, and to know you consider me game for jazz hands. To be honest though, my 16 year old daughter was sitting only a few feet away me so I didn’t do them the first time around—she already thinks I’m weird enough as it is and I didn’t want to give her any more ammo. I can just picture her saying to her friends “And *then* she did jazz hands at her computer screen. What a freak!” But I totally did them when I watched a second time with no teenagers around to judge me.

    Like Christopher, I’m very impressed that you could name all 50 states in alphabetical order, and I also can only name a few provinces. We Americans really aren’t known for our geography skills, are we? And now I have to learn how to do the cherry stem trick—which I’ve heard of many times but had never actually seen done–because I can do the same thing with my tongue. I don’t think there are many of us who can twist it both ways. That last sentence sounds weird, but you know what I mean. Isn’t it fun to watch people try to do it who can’t? They always lean there head to one side as if it will help.

    Congrats on keeping up with your resolution. I look forward to many more Stupid Human Tricks.

    P.S. I thought of you earlier today when I was listening to “Furiously Happy” (on Audible) and she was talking about her trip to Australia, “where everything wants to kill you.” She mentions the legless lizards!

    • And, when they are trying to do it they make that frowny face too. Good party trick (and I have never met anyone else who did it so, no surprise it was you). Keep me posted on whether you can get the cherry stem working. Try it with the faces and the eye roll, it helps.

  4. *their* heads! How embarrassing!

  5. You must be a lot of fun to live with! (Not counting the Emergency Room visits).

  7. This is awesome! Damn woman, all your mad skillz just makes me love you more. Never change! But if we ever meet in person, there’s no need to show me the upside down tongue thing again because even though it IS cool, it’s still kind of ick. 🙂

  8. Love this post! I am also a *jazz hands* girl, and can tie a cherry stem in a knot with my tongue! We are definitely soul sisters.
