I’d Give Anything To Be Like You

How many times have you heard the line “I would give anything to be as smart as you!”? It’s in movies, you’re friends have said it. Everyone has said it. You’d give anything to be as smart as me? I’d give anything to be like you!

It isn’t fun!? Why people think it’s fun to be smart, I don’t know.

There is nothing fun about it! If a smart person is not a Doctor, Lawyer, or an Engineer they’re waisting their brain. It’s true. No?

I can’t sleep! I can’t sleep because I can calculate exactly how many stitches are in my pillowcase. It’s distracting. I don’t care if the wind is blowing in A flat! I really don’t! It’s not cool to listen to someone talk and automatically know how many letters are coming out of their mouth.

I can do these amazing things, but I don’t know why. I’ve been able to do this for as long as I can remember. I hate it. I’m Jason Bourne. I don’t know who I am. It’s in the title.

I have something everyone wants. Everyone wants something from me. Well, everyone has something I want. Please tell me something I don’t already know.

    Embrace your abilities. Find a way to make the most out of your intelligence and stop worrying about being like everyone else. You are capable of wonderful things if you put your mind to it.

    Maybe that “waisting” is spelled “wasting.”  I don’t blame you.  I can’t remember words or recall them anymore, so I’m all messed up.  They actually messed up our language so that we’d appear stupid.  Theydo things like spell “guarantee” like “guaranty” at the bank and a few other things.

    I’ve always wanted to go to school among other things, but there’s always somehing to destroy me.

    I’ve been reduced to screeching and throwing things.

    Let’s give this another try.
