They say that pride goeth before a fall, and, boy, did I learn that the hard way this afternoon. Only a few days ago I promised all of you that I’d nail People.com’s Elliott Yamin video quiz, and for two questions anyway, it looked like I was totally on target. Elliott’s dream duet partner? Too easy. Favorite snack food? A breeze, yo. But then, like Superman taking a bite of a peanut butter-and-Kryptonite sandwich, I faltered on E-Double’s coveted superpower question, and again on the subject of Elliott’s first album purchase. (Who knew?)

Not surprisingly, my 3-out-of-5 score has sent me down the shame spiral, with only one hope of recovery. So if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to take a page from today’s Starting Over, climb inside a giant refrigerator box and, using a collection of black and red Sharpies, “draw my feelings” on the walls of my cardboard prison:

”Who am I?”
”Am I a good person?”
”I’m afraid to feel my feelings.”
Brenna Gethers.”

Once I’ve looked my demons in the eyes, I’m going to tear down those walls, and listen to ”A Song For You.”
