    Trying Since I Was A Kid

    I remember even as a kid I could never do it, all the other kids could and I'd try and try but I'd always get no where. Even to this day at 21, I still can't do it! I can make a slight sounds but nothing that anyone would notice lol.

    Whistling Is Nothing In The Light Of What You CAN Do

    Can you turn a cartwheel? Can you stand on your head? Why is it important to whistle? I've never learned to whistle, instead I squeal at such a high pitch it sounds like a whistle and even startles dogs. Don't get hung up on unimportant tasks you cannot do; consider all of the...

    Used to Be Able to

    I dunno why, but I can't whistle. I used to be good at it when I was a little kid, but for some odd reason I just can't do it anymore. I might give it a go every now and again, but I just can't make it happen. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to make it though life not...

    I Almost Kinda Sorta Did Once

    But it didn't really sound like a human whistle, it sounded like a bird whistling. It only lasted a couple seconds, and then I couldn't repeat it. **SIGH**
