Do you remember how some girls at school were always naturally better than you in picking up foreign languages? It used to frustrate the hell out of me how Marie over there was busy blathering away in French, c'est this, alors that, tant pis whatever. Meanwhile, I was struggling to translate "Cecilie liked cake" (stupid verbs!). Well, I think I'm not a natural at being a nice person. Oh I'm good at certain aspects in the same way I was good at the listening tests in French class. I'm not entirely bad! Just that the all-around foreign language of "niceness"? I'm not an A student. And I may always fluctuate between a B and C grade. But this is okay with me. Because in the end, no one in this whole world is perfectly nice, nor perfectly bad. That's what makes things interesting round here, n'est-ce pa?
