My family is moving. Again. I calculated it is the 15th time I've moved since my husband and I decided to go on this crazy roller coaster together.
|Does not compute.|
With this move, as in math class, I try to understand. I mentally coach myself: "This time you will get it. You just have to focus. Ask your nice Realtor/Loan Officer/Banker to explain what those words mean once more. Don't be afraid to ask for clarification."
Has any other writer out there ever wondered, "What is with this creative brain? Why can't it understand word problems about trains departing different stations or the difference between median and average values? Why can't it get the concept of escrow and title documents?"
I was feeling a little down on myself about all this, but then I stumbled across this great video on YouTube:
The world needs me and all you writers out there. We create, stretch and critique the language of the world around us. Pat yourself on the back even if you can't do math or understand the inner workings of the real estate market because "Whatever, Scarlet" would have been terribly anticlimactic.
