Your Ass-Sets a Low Bar

 

If we hear you play the piano,

you are a pianist.

If you show us the carrots and onions you grew,

you are a gardener.

If you hand us a copy of your signed novel,

you are an author.

If you are pulling 10 oz padded gloves on your hands,

you are a boxer.

If you are covered in flour and hand us a loaf of warm bread,

you are a baker.

But if you have to tell us that you are a “genius” and that your “two greatest assets have been mentally stability and being, like, really smart,”

then I, for one, feel brilliant for not believing you.
