What is with the phrase "common sense"? Because it doesn't seem to be too common. Seriously. How many times have you seen someone do something stupid or dumb and just shake your head in amazement at their lack of common sense. Clearly, common sense was not just dolled out in abudance to everyone. Rather, I think it was scooped out and given to a choice few who were destined to be frustrated with those around them who walk around in apparent ignorance - or at least laziness.
However, I am beginning to see that common sense has a lot to do with how you were raised. Maybe it's a genetic thing. Maybe if your parents (or at least one of them) has been generously scooped the gift of common sense then you have it - and notice how few others have "common" or as I see it now, UNcommon sense.
Simple things. Things that seem to just make sense. Uncommon sense.
