Overconfidence

Standard

Some people are afflicted with a lack of self-confidence.  Others of us are afflicted with a little too much confidence.  Like people who say, “even though I have never been a 2-dimensional artist, was not chosen to help paint the school’s windows in the third grade, and would never even consider painting anything on paper or a canvas to be displayed in public or private, I’ll borrow my 4-year-old’s paintbrushes and use oil-based permanent paint to decorate my camper with handkerchief paisleys.”  And so I did.  One man almost ran his pickup into the fence while driving through the alley, and neighbors I have never met walked dogs (were they even their dogs?) over my way to see what the [heck] I was doing to the little red camper in my back driveway.  It looks…(long pause)…better from a distance than close up.  But no one, ever, nowhere, will have a camper that looks just like mine.  One side down, three to go!
