When I was younger, there was this TV show… maybe on Nickelodeon? It was a game show, but I don’t think it was Double Dare. They’d get audience members (all kids) to come up on stage and they’d put index cards on their foreheads and each card had a set of instructions. I don’t remember what any of them were, but I remember that in each episode, someone would always get the card that says “Secret Talent.”
I can’t remember what this show was called, and I keep asking friends about it and they’re all insisting that I made it up.
I would get mild anxiety every time I watched that show. A kid would pull the Secret Talent card off his forehead, read it, and then immediately do a backflip or tap dance. My fear was that one day I’d end up in that audience, then on that stage, then with the Secret Talent card on my forehead, and I’d have no secret talent to show for it, and everyone would just stare at me.
All of these kids! Every episode! They all have a party trick to show. ”Do the thing!” and they’d do the thing and everyone would cheer. I didn’t have a thing. I would imagine myself just being like, “Uh, I can read really fast? I can put away more bags of Cheetos than men twice my size? IDK.”
So, two questions.
1) DOES ANYONE KNOW TO WHICH TELEVISION SHOW I AM REFERRING?
2) What’s your party trick/hidden talent?
