There are two kinds of people: The first are so incredibly stupid you can’t believe they’re still alive. Especially the older ones. You look at them and wonder how on earth they’ve managed to hold down a job, drive a nice car and have families, all while choking down fast food and reality TV. Lucky I guess? The other kind are poised and caring and use their having-it-togetherness to lift people up and leave the world a better place. They’re the group I find wholly intimidating. I feel myself sinking into the muddled vat of stupid people when they’re around.
