Everyone’s got a skill. Everyone’s got one thing that they’re inexplicably good at.
For many people it’s something useful, like having the ability to retain facts. Other people have more specific abilities, like being good at table tennis without every really having played before. Our skill is drinking litres and litres of water if we do anything remotely physical. We can’t actually carry enough if we’re climbing a hill or something.
Australia’s new fast bowler, Peter Siddle, has a skill. Peter Siddle’s skill is that he’s really, really good at chopping wood.
According to Cricinfo, he was so good at chopping wood that he did it competitively. “District under-age woodchopping titles came his way in his early teenage years.”
Under-age woodchopping titles, not ‘youth woodchopping titles’.
That’s quite apart from the most obvious question, which is: woodchopping titles?
