Susan is a super hero and so are you

Babies seem really simple. Food, diaper, sleep, warmth, love in the order they are asking for each day. Yet I totally suck at figuring out what babies need and Susan seems to have some kind of Super hero sensing ability at determining what Maya needs. We both try all the things babies like but she seems to be able to see what will work when I am in the dark. I am fascinated with the pockets of Super hero like intelligence each and every one of us has in relation to people around us. Those times when you can see the answer to a problem so clearly when people around you seem blind to it. Examples include, the right spice to add to a meal, the right color choice for a wall, how to work your computer or DVD player, how to merge onto the highway etc....
How are you a super hero amongst your peers?

What white people like link

This is a link to a funny blog about what white people like (bikes in this case).
Some of my other favorites are: Apple products, recycling, having 2 last names, writers workshops and farmers markets. Ella walking her snake is not a racially determined behavior.

2006 Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest

Despite the vast differences it their ages, ethnicity, and religious upbringing, the sexual chemistry between Roberto and Heather was the most amazing he had ever experienced; and for the entirety of the Labor Day weekend they had sex like monkeys on espresso, not those monkeys in the zoo that fling their feces at you, but more like the monkeys in the wild that have those giant red butts, and access to an espresso machine.
