    Did I Over Extend, Did I Leave Anything Out?

    If there was going to be a perfect person, what would they have to be like? Here's my starting point. Can you add to this? Should anything be removed?   A perfect person… …carries their own weight, pays their own fare, does their part as best they can...

    And I Hate It.

    When I was growing up, my older brother was a perfect child. He was smart as hell; he started reading at four years old. He was meek. He didn't throw rocks at people. My parents, especially my mother, always treated him slightly more favorably. Not significantly so, but enough to...

    But Will Never Succeed...

    Try as I do one would think I would be at least much closer to perfect. However no matter what I do I don't think, well I know that, I will never reach perfection.  No one will.  SO why do I try so hard?  Because I am just programmed to try to be perfect.

    On a scale from 1-10 I use a 9.7, because a 10 means being perfect and perfection doesn't exist so I use 9.7. Don't ask me why it's not a 9.9 because I don't know either.
