Uncanny ability

Right now on a local radio station there's a DJ who guesses (and always correctly) what brand of cigarettes people smoke based solely on their smoker's laugh. Smokers call in, they banter back and forth for a few minutes, then the DJ comes up with his guess. Number 7 red plain? Yes. Players Extra light? Yes. An amazing ability if you ask me.


My amazing talent is to diagnose people with a personality disorder within 30 seconds of seeing them. I don't even have to meet them, I just have to see them interact with others. And bang-o. Personality disorder diagnosed.


A man ordering coffee in my office building - immediately determined to be histrionic.


The lady I used to work with - figured her as borderline in minutes.


Don't even get me started on the moms from playschool.

But my question is, what will I be diagnosed with when I show up for my kid's picture session in matching Thing 1 and Thing 2 sweaters?

You will be diagnosed as being one cool mom! He's still too young to be embarrassed by it. *grin*

OMG! I need those! I have twins who really truly looked like Thing 1 and Thing 2 when they were little - with the big hair and all! How fabulous. Who cares what the picture people think.

I have no idea as I don't have that particular quality? By the way, what's my diagnosis?
