That cookie, sir, is mine.

This prompt comes from D who, in his initial game play for NaBloPoMo, came up with some really good questions. The one I am tackling today, “What I have learned in spite of my education?”

Oh, where do I even begin.


Here’s a smattering:


I learned…

  • about the varying methods of making a roommate aware that the cooking is not quite going as planned and that they can, in turn, learn of the severity of the damage given the amount of cursing.
  • that with the saying that there is more than one way to skin a cat, there are also infinite ways to annoy a cat.
  • that cat claws leaves scars.
  • when you don’t want to run into your ex’s, dress as well as you can. You step out in a stained t-shirt and sweatpants with natty hair, there they are – glaring at you.
  • that it really is instinctive how you handle a car tire exploding at 80 miles an hour.
  • burning bridges is not really the best way to handle life, but it is the most dramatic and gives the most content for late-night blogging/journaling.
  • friends mean more and do more to color your world than anything else. Save for love, I suppose. Whatever that word means, haven’t read the book or gotten the memo for that one.
  • that you shouldn’t feel obliged to finish all the books you start. Life is too short.
  • never say no to a chance to sit in a DeLorean.
  • that you should tell people that you love them even if you’re afraid to do so or even you know that the outcome will be negative.
  • that you should take the last cookie.

And finally, or at least finally for this post, I learned that…

  • education isn’t everything. Far from it, I fear.

    • You can always give yourself an ‘A.’
    • Or an ‘A+’ depending on how well you think you did.
    • It’s okay to be an enlightened and worldly feminist and still be attracted to big, hairy macho guys.
    • Nobody (with the possible exception of Trivial Pursuit teammates) really cares if you know what ‘hermeneutics,’ ‘gendered superstructures,’ or ‘ontological implications’ are.

    I learned that I’m suppose to share, which is different from learning how to share. I can relate to the concept of MY COOKIE!

    (the trick is to bake TWICE as many)

    You’re right you need to keep yourself as well dressed as possible to avoid unwanted encounters and you did handle the 80 mph blowout very well. Here’s a cookie.
