"they are pretty smart for people who've never earned their college degree."
yes, that is what someone said to me the other day. i suppose for a moment this person (who has known me personally for no less than 2 years) had conveniently forgotten that i, too, do not have a degree...or maybe she didn't have a complete lack of recall and was making a thinly veiled value judgment.
that exchange made me feel almost as good as the person who had the cajones to say to kelly, "i didn't know poor people could be smart."
at those moments i wish i was more eloquent and able to retort with something so clever and spot-on that the other person was left reeling from my insight into their soul.
perhaps i could...if only i wasn't so poverty-stricken and uneducated.
