sometimes when i feel totally and completely humiliated, when my ego (shaped like a heart) has just been smashed like a small frog, it helps if i remind myself that in high school i was on the constitution team. and i was good at it. i had very short curly hair, i wore pencil skirts, and my group rocked the state finals.
in addition, i think about page 4 of one of my favorite books (bullet points 5 & 6). it makes everything seem very hilarious and much less humiliating.
and, don't worry, i just found some gummi bears in the outside fridge.
