Everyone Has a Special Talent

Many of the residents at Parc Esta in Singapore decided to have a talent show. There are a lot of people who live in the condos that can do some amazing things, and I consider myself to be one of them. I learned how to juggle when I was just a little boy. I started with a couple of balls and continued until I could juggle five. Then I moved on to heavier objects like bowling pins and jars full of pickles. I broke a few jars while trying to master the heavy juggling, but now I can do it. I can even do it with some dangerously sharp objects, like knives and swords. I haven’t tried using chainsaws, like some of the other jugglers, because I’m afraid of injuring myself.

The residents decided on the order that everyone in the talent show would perform. My juggling act was slotted near the middle of the show, so while waiting for my turn, I had the opportunity to watch some of the other acts. One woman could sing as well as an opera singer and she had no kind of formal training. When she sang her song, the entire audience was moved to tears. One person put on a magic show and even turned a rose petal into an egg and cracked it in a glass.

When it was finally my turn, I started with juggling the balls, and then called someone from the audience to act as a volunteer. I had the audience member throw knives at me, and I caught them all while juggling them. The audience thought I was going to get hurt, and let out a gasp every time a knife was thrown, but when they saw that I caught them all, they cheered and applauded loudly.
