Earthly Gripe of the Day
I just read several profiles in succession where the person described himself in the first line as “down to Earth”. Do they need to say they are in their profiles? How substantive of a comment can it be? It seems to me that this would be something only another person could say about someone, who isn’t that person’s mother, the way people sometimes say “told I’m good looking.” Not sure what down to Earth means, anyway. Good center of gravity? Sober? Not a dreamer? Easy going? Un-heavenly? Jaded? Bitter?
