Word of The Day Challenge: APPLICATION
I took singing lessons
lots and lots of singing lessons
of course I could not sing
but did that stop me?
It did not! I’d belt those ugly sounding notes out anyway by jingo.
I took driving lessons
but did I learn to drive well
did I learn all of the rules
was I going to be a skillful and confident driver?
Oh heck no! But I know that. So I don’t drive like a jackass.
I used to take
all kinds of classes
and I bombed out of each and every one.
Did I ever learn to sew or write screenplays? Did I learn anything at all?
I did not. I am the black hole of any education system you toss my way.
What I did learn was to fail
and I suppose that is the most important lesson to learn of them all.
I can fail on an epic scale with a smile and dignity and grace.
I can even crash and burn and lick my own wounds.
Which, really is not such a bad thing to know how to do.
