As I sit quietly sobbing

I find myself wondering how I can have a checking account less than a year old on which all of ten checks have been written and yet I am still $300 out of sync with what the bank says the total is. And even after trying my best to add and subtract, divide and multiply, parse and diagram, I still can’t figure it out. So I accept the bank’s total as true and also accept that I am a math idiot.

As we age, we learn to accept these limitations more gracefully so I will now stop sobbing and go find some candy to comfort me.
