This was no mix-up at the bean cannery.
This was a meant-to-be bean. It is, in so many ways, so much more than a bean.
It’s a story. And the story has a moral for all of us.
It can be hard to look at someone who others think looks like you and think… do I look like that? Hmm, I thought I was… prettier.
My inability to determine the word I’m trying to say coincides with the increasing incidents of walking purposefully into a room only to completely forget upon arrival what I am doing there.
What if I could take confidence from those who have WAY too much of it (I’m looking at you, Bravado Bill) and give it to Tentative Tammy over here.

I say, “You never know what your superpower might be, until you’re forced to MacGyver a set of car keys out of a sewer grate for the Crying Lady in the Parking Lot.”
We’re so in tune with the flaws of the familiar, maybe it’s time to reappraise our value. How are you evaluating the worthiness of YOU, your most valuable asset?
