     I often think it would be pretty great to be able to walk on water, but then I begin to wonder what I would actually be able to do with a life skill like that.  It’s not like I’m going to walk across an ocean or anything.  I guess like every other marginally useful skill, I would just end up putting it on my resume, somewhere between “good communication skills” and “able to work well with others”.
