I know it's a random thing to post but whistling is one of those things that most people seem to be able to do but... I cannot whistle. I've tried but I can't do it.

How can this be something that comes so easily to people ?!

Is there anybody here who can't whistle either ? You can join my non whistling club ! laugh.gif

I can't whistle either. Can I join your non-whistle club ?

I can't whistle. I mean, yeah, I can make a couple of whistles if I keep on trying, but not enough to qualify as whistling. It's not very loud at all. I fail. And for some reason, people whistling gets on my nerves, especially when it's a girl doing it. Go figure.
