I’m getting a lot smarter. That doesn’t keep me from being just as big an a-hole, but I realize it sooner. It used to take me years to realize what an a-hole I’d been. Now I realize it in only days or even hours after the fact.

The other day a sweet old lady visited us. She spoke decent English and was quite polite. When I found that she was three years younger than me, I started bragging on my age and preening for her, hoping to get her to say how young I looked. I could see I hurt her feelings and there was no way out of it. I made an ass of myself.

I wonder if I’ll ever get smart enough to keep from being an a-hole in the first place.

Probably not.
