    I Can't Think of a Title.

    I can't see how some people can just sense direction. If I know what time it is, and the sun is out, I can sometimes determine what direction I'm going, but that's the only way. I never can "retrace my steps" when trying to figure out where I came from. If I'm going to get...

    I Couldn't Find My Way Out of a Paper Bag!

    Directions?  They're all Greek to me.  North?  South?  East?  West?  Whatever.  I have never had an internal compass like it seems that most people do.  I think perhaps I used to have one and it broke.  I'm not sure.  The strange...
