Smarter Than The Average Punk ...

Jacob and I were having a conversation and I told him that I felt overwhelmed. He asked me what 'overwhelmed' means.

I tried to explain it, that sometimes even when you're really happy and everything in your life is great, you can get frustrated or feel like there's too much going on. It's a little bit difficult to explain that word to a ten-year-old.

But he listened, and then said, "kind of like a computer, how it can't do a whole bunch of things at once or it sort of crashes."

"... That's right," I replied.
