Even though I live with my head in the clouds and my feet in cotton wool, I have a hard time reading between the lines.
I don’t really “get” sarcasm. Innuendoes are lost on me.
“Why don’t you just say what you mean?” goes through my mind when confronted with clever talk.

Nah. Not a leprechaun. The other one. He has a number of names.
How about malcontent?
No, nobody would like to have a “little guy in green” label.

When someone falls, I want to help them up.
When someone cries, I want...
