    Things You're Terrible At.....

    No matter how hard you've tried, thinking it looked easy and that you could do it or would be good at it, it's turned out to not be your "cup of tea" (so to speak). In fact, you are down right terrible at it. Maybe it's an activity, hobby, chore, or even behavior or habit that society stereotypically says a man or woman should/shouldn't be good at due to their gender.

    Or maybe it's a habit that you've developed over time, maybe due to age or whatever, that you wish you could change/fix, because it frustrates the heck out of you yet you don't know what you can do to correct it.

    Like with me at remembering names. I have a terrible time remembering names. And I'm talking about people I interact with, such as family members and/or co-workers, on a daily/weekly basis. I suffer from "brain farts" where I all of a sudden can't remember that person's name. And it's embarrassing and frustrating.

    Or maybe it's something you can't do anything about, but it still frustrates you like being the hyper active person that I am. And even though my body, due to age is slowing (breaking) down, my mind isn't. I have a hard time staying on task because I have a zillion other things going on inside my mind. I'll therefore, in an attempt to get the task done quickly as possible, take shortcuts, or as I call it "improvise". Which causes my wife and kids to shake their collective heads and stand next to the phone in case 911 needs to be called.

    My wife always says .... "Watch your Dad kids and learn. Learn what the wrong way is, and how not to do something."

    So I am teaching my kids something. :
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Definitely names and dates. My brain just isn't wired for them. It's horribly frustrating.

    Housework/ decorating, etc. ..... I'm no Martha Stewart.

    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Can't do cartwheels. I don't get it, I really don't.

    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.
