Older, Wiser, And More Cranky

I am used to being known as the guy who seems to know everything.

The reality is I answer just about every question, even if the answer is, “I don’t know.”

Because of this, there is the façade of me knowing just about everything, which forces me to know a little bit about everything.

But as I have grown older, wiser, and more cranky, I have learned that I don’t need to know so much about everything.

Except when people who believe I know everything asks me about the things they care a lot about and I have chosen to care less about.

This becomes a problem for them. They think it becomes a problem for me, but not so much as I grow older, wiser, and more cranky.
