Dry As A Bone


If you ask me anything related to numbers- like what time is is? How many eggs go into that mix? How many miles away is it? This little trickle of sweat starts at the back of my neck and races down my spine.

So if I could have ask for one talent- it wouldn’t be to sing, it wouldn’t be to dance.

It wouldn’t be to draw and paint or to be a great photographer.

I do all of those things anyway, I’m just really, really bad at all of them but a lack of talent has never stopped me from singing or drawing or taking pictures.

The one talent I’d wish for would be the talent to be a scary good at math,

If I was good at math I could have been an engineer for NASA  or a scientist. I don’t care which in which  field. I’ve just always wanted to be a scientist.

But I’m no good at math and I’m afraid of numbers and when  I day dream,  I always see myself in a lab with numbers all around me and the skin over my spine is as dry as a bone.
