juggling a soccer ball, being best friends with other peoples'
cats, catching absurdities, wrestling them to the ground, acquiring
their secrets. Oh! I am also adept at not talking about myself.
Also really good at handstands, ice cream, and watching adventure

acrobatics. (Widely regarded as the sexiest martial art.)
