This post written by Jenn, and my ensuing comment, got me thinking about this famous line from A Streetcar Named Desire. I put on my best southern drawl and say that to myself when everyone else seems to have their shit so together.
I like to imagine that my lack of practical skills for ordinary life means that the gray matter usually allotted for that stuff has been channeled elsewhere, making me a genius.
Wishful thinking, I know. But it works!
