Roll your R's when saying Spanish words? No, but I can curl my Ch's and my zip my Tz's like a Sabra.

Curl your tongue into a U shape? Yes

Ride a bike? Yes

Rollerskate? No

Ski? No

Handle spicy food? Yes, very

Eat with chopsticks? Yes, I even spent a couple years using chopsticks exclusively.

Cook without boxed mixes? Yes, but not super fancy stuff.

Handle rated R movies? Not really. I look like a big brave dog, but I'm just a timid puppy on the inside.

Grow a garden, and keep it alive? Usually. But I'm no good at houseplants.

Fix a flat tire? Not at all. Never was taught, and many times, when I asked any man to teach me, they said, "It's man's work." and shooed me away. I wish I knew basic auto repairs, for safety reasons.

Change a diaper? Yes, both cloth and plastic.

Drive a car? Yep. I'm a drivin' master. I love the open road.

Fly an airplane? No

Find north without a compass? Yes, as long as I can see the sun, moon, or stars.

Use a barbecue? Yes, a gas grill, but charcoal briquets are harder to use. I am scared of the big "whoosh" of flame from the lighter fluid. Also it takes so long for the briquets to ash over. I have barbequed with briquets, but they really frighten me. Campfire cooking is fun, however, and my daughter and I love our summertime Weenie Roasts. It's a family tradition.

Type over 50 words per minute? I think I hover right around 45.

Understand coding? Nope. Not really into learning it either.

Dance with rhythm? Sometimes. lol

Sing well? I love to sing. I sing often. But I don't know how much the other people enjoy it. I have kind of a flat, whispery singing voice that doesn't go up and down with the music like it should.

Play the piano? Yes, I can read music and play songs, but I don't know how to play fancy chords.

Play the drums? No, but I've been in a few Native American sacred drum circles before :)

Sew clothing? Yes, very basic clothing.

Quilt? Yes, very basic quilts.

Knit? Yes, very basic knitting.

Crochet? Yes, very basic crocheting.

Color in the lines? In theory, lol

Write stories? Yes I like to. It's sometimes hard for me, and I don't know if I'm very talented at it, but I sure do enjoy expressing myself that way.

Read without glasses? Yes, but as I enter my forties, I find that I can't read the fine print on the back of the conditioner bottle anymore.

Chew without dentures? Yup. I have most of my teeth still. Missing a few back molars, because I'd rather have a tooth pulled than drilled and filled. My teeth are still truckin along.

Stay in a room full of loud noises and talking for over one hour without trouble? No. Get me out of there, before I start desperately clawing the walls like a cat.

but charcoal briquets are harder to use. I am scared of the big "whoosh" of flame from the lighter fluid. Also it takes so long for the briquets to ash over. I have barbequed with briquets, but they really frighten me.
You need to get yourself a barbeque chimney. Set up the chimney on the charcoal grate. You put crumpled paper in the bottom, fill the top with charcoal or briquets, and light the paper. Then sit back and let the magic of convection do its stuff. In half an hour you can dump the hot charcoal into the grill. Be careful, the chimney is super hot and you need something non-flammable to put it on to let it cool. I do not like lighter fluid.
