HOW DID I MAKE IT PAST THE SECOND GRADE?

I promise I'm smart sometimes
  1. I have to sing the alphabet song every time I need to put anything in alphabetical order.
  2. I don't know which numbers correspond with the months, so when I write the date shorthand I recite all the months to myself in order and count them on my fingers.
  3. I cannot tell time from an analog clock without a great amount of effort and an embarrassing amount of time, and will usually just seek out a digital clock.
  4. I have no idea how to read any Roman numerals greater than III.
