[corner-ad id=1]I have been thinking all day about the things that I am terrible at doing. Clearly, number one on that list has to be keeping this page current. Seriously, you’d think I never did public relations or anything. Sheesh!
But as I get older, I find I am getting bad at a lot of simple things, like putting my clothes on. I have left the house at least twice this month with my shirt on inside out. Really. That must look really professional. And that’s not the only task I mastered at four or so only to lose later in life. Do I know the difference between left at right? I do. Do I get this correct? If you’re talking about the political left and right, sure, I am all over it. If you mean the directional left and right, I have no idea. It comes in really handy when I give directions and get them wrong.
What day of the week is it? Don’t ask me, I never know. Oh, and I also sometimes will think it is two different days of the week at the same time. Yes, you read that right, at the same time. For instance, I will operate like it is a Tuesday for the purposes of meetings, calls and appointments but for social things will think it’s Thursday. It makes so sense. I think it may be the same brain function that allows me to be scared of Mormons while loving Steve Young.
And one thing that I am super bad at is knowing how much time has elapsed between now and when something happened. Was it five minutes ago or did it happen when I was four? Who can tell!?!? I know it happened, isn’t that enough?
