Miss Know-it-All

When I was 15 and became CEO of Irene Inc I had it all together. I had graduated Magna Cum Laude from the school of Hard Knocks, (doesn't matter what the papers say that school is higher than Harvard!), and I knew it all.

People would come to me from all over. At school, work, home and even on the street and ask me questions the average person would probably pause before answering. I used logic for my answers and truthfully I was rarely ever wrong. I mean, I was never asked the cures for cancer, but I probably could have mapped out a logical answer for world peace.

Even when I didn't know. I answered questions in such a way that you would WANT to believe me. You could not imagine that such confidence could be used to relay the wrong information. Again, because I seemed to possess the superior logic in the general area I would just give a black or white answer. I never entertained the grey. Even when they grey showed up.

But now, fast forward to the present day. I am more than 10 years older now. I don't have the answers anymore. I need answers. There is grey - so much grey. WTF do I do with the grey???

Irene - I need an answer - where are you? Where are you Miss Know-It-All?!?!?
