You may have my soul, but it won't skip or snap, either.

In one of those things that prove I must be from another planet, I was watching the video "Come to Daddy" by Aphex Twin, and I occurred to me there are two skills I have never attained as a child: I cannot skip and I cannot snap my fingers. My attempts to skip result in a trip and fall, and snapping my fingers just results in some noise like pathetically brushing two fingers together. I have had multiple people try and teach me, but it never worked out. I also never learned how to ride a bike, but that's not really the balance issue, it's more of a "legs getting tangled with pedals" issue which is why I cannot ride a stationary bike, either.

Is there any skill that it is claimed one should learn as a child that you never did?
