I am extremely stupid

I mean that in the Scott Adams of Dilbert way in which he says that all humans are stupid about something. I am extremely stupid about asking for help. I am trying to get less stupid. However I seem to be a particularly slow learner.

I am nursing a very very sore backside. I fell off a horse on Wednesday. I had to rush with Little T back to our house for an appointment. Did I ask for help to hurry Little T home even though my sister sister-in-law and mother were there? And they had carried him partway there. No I did not. And I ended up hurrying him along and he fell and skinned his knee. And so I picked him up and carried him the rest of the way home. I felt bad that he skinned his knee. Later I thought "Gosh my backside really hurts."

I returned C's earlier call. Perhaps he had felt my aching backside. First thing he asked after I told this story was "Well did you ask for help?" "No" I reply and feel stupid since it had not occurred to me until then that I should ask for help. Yes I am very stupid.

I hope that by writing this down I will learn to be less stupid next time.
