Probably about four or so years ago I decided that I wanted to learn how to juggle three balls as shown in the many videos on YouTube  https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=juggle+three+balls
I've since upped my juggling ability to juggle two balls in one hand, either hand, but only one hand at a time.
I can also do the "tennis" juggling trick when juggling three balls.
I cannot juggle more then three balls, but I'd like to be able to.

Can you juggle or do you have some other hidden skill/talent?

I can juggle, sort of.  I can also play keyboards.  I also transcribe music using LilyPond, which is very much like programming.

I cannot read music notes or anything like that. To me is seems confusing and I did not learn when I was in school, but I could have.

I cannot play keyboards either...I suspect that most people would have to learn how to read music before doing this.
However I'm impressed with the people who can learn music by ear.

Like a lot of things, reading music notation is easy if you learn when you are young. On the other hand I just did a quick web search and found quite a number of musicians who couldn't read music. There's Eric Clapton (I didn't name my son Eric because of him) and Jimi Hendrix and a whole lot of jazz musicians.

And no, I can't juggle.
