All the Time In the World to Get It Right

People think he is clever and
quick and good with talk and
he gives that impression, but

all of it took so much work so
very much work until he didn’t
have to do it anymore. It wore

him down over time because that
was his job and he was always
afraid he wouldn’t be able to

come up with the witty quip at
the spur of the moment. He took
an IQ test in college and scored

okay but it was timed and he felt
under enormous pressure and he
doesn’t do his best when he is

anxious. He took an on-line IQ
test and did much better because
he had all the time in the world

to get the answer right. He sighed
a sigh of relief when that score
came through, kind of like when

he writes something. He has all
the time in the world and it feels
really good to get the words right.
