Slacker



"If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried."
Not sure who said this......
Last night in conversation Mary referred to herself as a Slacker. She was comparing herself to one of her Doctoral classmates and said something like, "compared to her, I'm a slacker". If Mary is a slacker I am a slug trying to cross the street. I'm determined to get there but the road if full of dangers and my gosh it's going to take me forever. It's going to take me forever because I'm slow and because I could be distracted by something really good I see or I guess feel on the ground. Mary is a big reason why I am a humble man. Her drive to get things done is wildly impressive. A SLACKER she is not.
It's a good life....
