What is awesome about your body?

It's International Body Positivity Thursday*, so tell me some awesome thing about your anatomy.

Mine is that I have finger toes. It's a family trait on my father's side, and my kids have them too. I can pick stuff up with my feet pretty easily, and I bet I could write with them if I practiced. Considering how bad my handwriting is, I imagine my footwriting could possibly be more legible.

I can also bend my toes almost flat both forwards and backwards. I didn't even realize this was weird until PhMom saw me flexing my toes like that and pointed out this was not normal. It was at this time that I figured out why my shoes always get worn out where they do, since I have a tendency to squat down on the balls of my feet with my fingertoes flat and my heels up.

ETA: Thank you everyone whose participated. I was a little worried about posting it, that it might be taken the wrong way, but I'm glad to see that it's made so many people feel good.
