Quote of the Day (P.J. O’Rourke, on Being a Child 'Jackson Pollock Without the Genius')

“I was a child whose finger paintings were all thumbs and whose attempt to stay inside the lines in a coloring book produced a Jackson Pollock without the genius. My plastic model airplane kit assembly went so wrong in its wing attachment that my innocently encouraging Dad said, ‘That's a fine little sailboat.’”—American humorist P.J. O’Rourke, “Scrapyard Sculptures,” The Financial Times (“How to Spend It” weekend supplement), Jan. 8-9, 2021

I can relate to this.
