Question of the Day

Suggested by Shaker FloraFlora: "What's something you've done recently (or ever) that made you feel unusually competent or perceived-as-competent?"

Often the fact that I have a very good memory is perceived as competence, when it's really just a genetic gift.

The flipside of that is, because I have a reputation for having a very good memory, it's frequently perceived as gross incompetence when I forget something!
