I’ve been thinking about this for a long time, actually years. I used to use the term idiot but have since changed to dumbass. It says more to me. I have more of a connection with the dumbass word rather than the idiot word. I don’t know why, but I have my fears over this.
I look at some people during my travels through town and they’ll make some dumbass move and I’ll immediately think “dumbass”. BUT, I ask you, maybe I am the dumbass and don’t know it. I’m sure the person I am calling a dumbass doesn’t know they are a dumbass which only leads me to conclude that I could be a dumbass and not know it.
That’s a scary thought. What if we are all dumbasses and don’t know it?
I’ve always thought of myself as fairly intelligent. I do well at Trivial Pursuit. I’m well read. I can figure out how to use my computer, most days. I listen to opera. But is that enough to keep me from being a dumbass?
I suppose I could just be a partial dumbass. I know I’m not perfect. My family will attest to that fact, over and over and over again. So maybe I can console myself by thinking I’m just an intelligent person who occasionally makes dumbass moves.
But what about the real dumbasses? You know the ones. You’ve seen them in your town too, swaggering down the road with their pants down around their knees. Am I the dumbass because I don’t wear my capris like this?
Do they know they are dumbasses? Do they look in the mirror and see a dumbass? No, they don’t. Do I look in the mirror and see a dumbass? No, I don’t. So which one of us is the dumbass. Will the real dumbass please stand up!
Wikipedia does not currently have an encyclopedia article for Dumbass. I find that interesting. They have articles about everything else in the world. There is a website http://www.dumbassdaily.com. There are actually quite a few websites with the word dumbass in them.
I ACTUALLY FEEL BAD FOR THIS POOR DUMBASS WHO IS NOW GOING TO STAY POOR. IT’S A SHORT VIDEO ONLY 85 SECONDS BUT SHOWS HOW WE CAN ALL BE DUMBASSES AT TIMES.
Speaking of dumbasses, I figured out why my video sucked. I didn’t have it on high quality probably because I never use it. So I will have to take it to the grocery store again to do a retake. Unfortunately I can only get 15 seconds out of it at high quality.
SARAH BOUGHT ME THIS T-SHIRT THIS PAST WEEKEND. SHE SAID IT REMINDED HER OF ME BECAUSE OF THE BIRKS.
I don’t know. I do wander around sometimes feeling a little lost wondering who the dumbass is.
