"Know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em"

I consider myself a fairly intelligent and somewhat talented person. When I was little, I got bored of watching my brothers fumble around trying to learn how to ride bikes so I went next door, got a bike from a friend, and rode up on it and everyone was stunned that I could teach myself to ride a bike in 2 minutes when it had taken my siblings months... I used to play piano decently by ear until my parents got me some creepy piano teacher and I refused to touch a piano after that... I was on the Deans List through high school and graduated with honors... I was the only one of my siblings to graduate college in 4 years (basically with two degrees), and that was staying an extra semester so I wouldn't have to slam myself the rest of the time... I've learned to rock climb, mountain bike, fix cars, race cars and knit... I had secured a great teaching job, was married, bought a house, and had a dog by the time I was 23... BUT...

I also do the stupidest stuff -- I screw up EasyMac (everytime I make it)... I screw up Shake and Pour Pancakes (add water, shake, pour -- not that difficult)... and I manage to hurt myself taking a nap on the couch. It's been a painful day. Time for more Advil and more staying in one position and not moving. How can a generally smart person be such an idiot sometimes? Hmmm...
