A lot of "unique talents" come from fun gifts we got for Christmas. That's true for a lot of celebrities as well. Funny lady Leslie Mann got a unicycle for Christmas when she was 10 years old and taught herself for ride it! Steve Martin got his first banjo at age 17 and has won awards for his musical albums. My brother's got juggling books one Christmas and I got my first cookbook. I think my parents realized at a young age that I was too klutzy and uncoordinated for juggling or anything else like that.
