and I got to impart my knowledge to other people, which felt really good, because I love being the know-it-all.
Really? We had no idea.
That is awesome though, Cloveress! Now my turn to be the know-it-all, the correct name for those kind of people are docents. I went on a trip to two of Minnesota's museums, the Walker and the MIA, as part of my art appreciation class. That was very fun, only got to spend a few hours though at the MIA, where even a whole day would be insufficient to see everything.
I also have more of an apptitude for art and literature and none for math. My husband is a civil engineer and I swear he has a computer chip in his head he can do math so well. I tease him because he can remember the number on his first driver's liscense but when we went to get him a new one in a different state and he was filling out the forms he had to ask me what color his eyes were.
Funny thing is, I never had an interest in art before taking this class. It was only because I needed to fill in some credits and it was the last day to register, so I had to choose in a hurry. And while I have loved to read since first grade, writing has always been a pain to me. My mom was expecting me to get a C in the english class, but I came out with a high B, of which she was quite surprised, glad but surprised.
That is funny about your husband, I know a few people like that. I'm kinda like that in some ways; for example, I can tell you what Napoleon wrote, to his wife, about the Russian Czar in the early 1820s, but I can't tell you what the last thing was that my sister said to me about 2 hours ago. lol :elkgrin:
