Wouldn't You Know . . .

I totally identify with this quote from Betty MacDonald's book "The Egg and I"
I got so I could dress chickens like an expert, but have wondered since how this ability to defeather a chicken in about two minutes without once tearing the skin, my only accomplishment, could ever be mentioned socially along with swimming and diving, or gracefully demonstrated as with violin and piano playing. Wouldn't you know that I would excel in chicken picking?
Wouldn't you know that I excel in cleaning bathrooms.
Oh well. In my next life I'm going to be a ballerina, or violin virtuoso.
