We've always been envious of those people who just seem to get it. They're always coming up with easy solutions for every possible problem that comes up. We, on the other hand, are always having "Duh!" moments. You know, where one of those "get it" types mentions casually how they keep their remote from falling through the sofa cushions—while we sit there, furiously taking notes to share the tip with you.
