You know what the difference between Henry and me is? Not the difference but a difference.

Henry is more patient. Is that bold? It’s true.

I don’t know if you’ve ever asked Henry to explain something to you, or seen him do it to someone else. But he’s infinitely patient, it’s pretty amazing. He’ll step by step explain things to you with incredible completeness, often with visual diagrams and stuff, and not get frustrated or angry. He’s done this with me and John multiple times.

Whereas anytime I have to explain something to someone else, it’s hard for me not to get frustrated. I dunno why I’m like that.

I think it’s related to the fact that Henry is incredibly knowledgeable about a lot of practical things. So, he’s used to having to explain things to people about stuff like this because he does it all the time, and he knows more about pretty much any practical subject than you do. Whereas with me my knowledge is limited to the useless so if I have to explain something that someone else might want to know, it’s not something I’m used to.

Yeah, I think that’s it. Because when I do have to explain stuff in something I’ve always known a lot about, I don’t get frustrated. Like music. I’m extremely patient (I think) when explaining stuff about music because I’m used to knowing more than other people. It doesn’t bother me at all.

But maybe I’m wrong.
