I Can’t Write Cursive…

… and apparently that makes me some kinda idjit.

Here’s all I have to say about that:

UPDATE: I should clarify that the comments weren’t directed at me personally, but on various conversations I’ve seen more than one person say it is not possible to consider yourself literate unless you master cursive.

I don’t disagree with The Anchoress on this. I think cursive is nice. So is flower arranging and cabinetry. I can’t do those things, either. Some people are just taking it too far, and making it a sign of a character flaw or a lack of literacy. In my case and my son’s, it’s frankly a motor defect.
