I’ve always been jealous of people who can do great things. I tried to be great once when I was younger. Then I got so sick that for a while I had something like food pushed through a tube that was pushed up my nose and into my stomach. Daily, all day. I don’t think you can live like that. When I learnt to use a knife and fork they let me go for walks and encouraged me to buy candy. Cherry cola and sour lemon sherbet things with the hard coating on the outside. Sour, I loved that.
