My parents were a lot of things but not itelligent
When you are in school and learning ----yes you are smarter with the "book" and technology. As you get older you realize that they had so much wisdom and knowledge and so much you could of learned from their experiences. That is the time you realize to appreciate everyone in your life, cause after they are gone---you can't ask the questions anymore.
I wish my parents were smarter than me.
Heh-heh. Opposite! They had me pretty well snowed. I thought Mom was a great cook, Dad an important businessman, their divorce inevitable. (At least they loved me.)
