A short, off-the-top-of-my-head list.

Things I've enjoyed greatly in my life, but never been very good at:

Interpreting Poetry
First Person Shooters
Dancing (college only - I've settled)
Trivia Games
Picking Winning Football Teams
Communicating Emotions with Women
Texas Hold 'Em
Selecting Personal Gifts for Friends

I'll add more in comments as I come up with them. What's on your list?

You've never been good at "Selecting Personal Gifts for Friends"? Trust me, you're wrong about this one.
