    Can You Pick Up A Pen With Your Toes?

    My daughter was walking out of my office a while ago, and dropped her pen. Barely breaking stride, she picked it up with her toes, transferred it to her hand, and carried on.

    I tried and there was just no way. Couldn't do it.

    So, had wife and son try it. No problem (other than looking at me like I'd lost my mind).

    I've seen Asians from a variety of countries using their feet as extensions of their hands. Is it an Asian thing?

    Can you do it? Do I just have uncoordinated feet?

    Confused...............

    My daughter who has many of my traits (sad, I know) recently went to pick up some socks she had left in the living room with her toes. The wife yelled at her for being impolite, I was just happy she was picking up after herself.

    So, physically capable. Counts as a yes. But half-Thai, so doesn't really impact the survey. Which is pointing to poor motor skills on my part.

    Read something the other day about motor skills and getting old. If a person can sit on the floor and then get up without using their arms, they are good to go. Personally, I can not...

    I can - I can also pick up two pebbles, one in each foot, from the bottom of the pool at the same time and transfer to the hand before I come up again.

    I dropped a joint on the floor one day but scampered the fuker up in 3.5 seconds using my toes.

    The answer must be a resounding " foking oath mate ".
