I remember being 17, even 18 and knowing just one primal thing. I knew it all & oh by the way , Dad knew nothing and was just flat crazy. Well as most of us have had the good fortune to realize I really knew very little. So it seems that for some this epiphany takes hold oh around 19 or 22. For me it was 19 and again at 22. Now with every passing day I am reminded of the infinante wisdom and knowledge my father has amassed.
Now I know that everyone says that many things start earlier these days. ( having the birds and bees talk, etc. Oh and why is it the birds and bees? Why isn't it the pigs and horses or the chickens and the salamander? Anyway) The question here is how is it that an 8yr old can have the same primal knowledge that I had 18? Why is it that at 40 almost 41 I know nothing after painstakingly spending the past 20 yrs of my life collecting as much knowledge as possible to someday pass onto this child? Honest I have paid attention in this classroom called life. I try to learn from others mistakes and not follow their lead down the path of doom and demise. I have also stockpiled many great lessons and learning's through others. I have carefully patterned my skill sets in the vein of my father. I still know nothing or at least I am reminded daily that my knowledge is not there. Maybe I need to go back to the hospital where my 8yr old was born and ask again for the owners manual that they never gave us when we left as proud parents that glorious day. So, I guess if you won't listen my reason, now you will have to listen to Mom. Let me know how that works out... Blah blah blah
