Year 26, I Know Who I’m Not

I’ve been thinking about writing this post for a while, trying to figure out some sassy wise-assed way of starting and frankly, I’ve got nothing.

A Jigsaw Puzzle

As a child, I was fascinated with solving jigsaw puzzles. I would spend hours matching pieces just to see the whole picture. Even today, though I am no longer an ardent player, I still spend time playing the jigsaw app on my laptop. Have you ever noticed just how nicely two pieces will fit when…
