If you had to teach a class on one thing, what would you teach?:

How to juggle.  Seriously, I learned to juggle in about 30 minutes when I was a kid and then starting teaching others to do it.  I did a whole class on it in High School…it was hilarious…tennis balls everywhere! I do have some limitations to juggling…no flames, knives, or animals!  Who knew that keeping things from dropping and hitting the floor would be so helpful in my day to day job 😉
