So I have a question.

Am I the only college graduate who still gets her right and her left horribly, HORRIBLY confused?

Not ALL of the time; I know my right from my left. But it seems that in crucial moments, my brain fails me and I end up getting lost, giving bad directions or saying something dumb.

Actually, I know I am not the only college grad who still mixes them up. My sister does as well and we realized this sometime this past spring. We decided to team up and place blame on our mother.

I'm not dyslexic, because as I said this is not a daily thing. It just only happens when it matters. Like last week, when I was picking up someone for lunch and got SO turned around, that I frustrated myself into a frenzy. I was shaking because I was so frustrated. Then, I was so embarrassed about being so embarrassed that later that afternoon I made myself call and apologize (AGAIN) to the poor soul who waited almost 20 minutes on me to decipher my right from my left long enough to pick him up.

Anyway, I'm not stupid. I just get excited about other things (going somewhere, someone coming to see me, going to pick someone up) that the logistics (turn right, turn left) take a backseat... sometimes. Then there are those rare and beautiful moments when I super excited about am heading somewhere important to see someone that matters to do something unforgettable and I don't get lost at all.

But I digress. Make me feel better and tell me I don't fight this battle alone.
