I read an article the other day.

It talked about how people who are tardy are more innovative and optimistic about life.

I thought:
I'm tardy.

I'm always tardy.

         Even as a teacher I'm tardy.

                                                        Does that mean I'm brilliant? Or somehow smarter than others?

Probably.  Yeah.  That's probably what it means.

Then, I think:

Wow.   I'm conceited.

I know I'm conceited.

Should I do something about it?!

Probably.  Yeah.  I probably should do something about it.

I do want to write with you looking over my shoulder.  

I wish I wasn't so shy about it.
