Yes agreed.

I often wish I was as fast or as bright as people assume I am.

When they keep throwing things at me without any explanation and expecting me to figure it out, I usually eventually do. Of course later I find out what I figured out had nothing to do with what they were trying to show me.

But I do appreciate (with a good laugh) the unrealistic compliment I am so unworthy of.

Just not that fast folks in any way, and getting slower as I get older.

But losing less, learning and laughing more.

Until again,
