classes and standard modules

I don't understand classes very well... maybe some day. Is it just me or 
are they supposed to be difficult to understand? They make my head hurt.

Anyway, because I don't understand classes well, I avoid using them. 
However, many modules in the standard library are implemented as 
classes: sgmllib, HTMLParser, etc. Is it possible to use these modules 
without getting into OO programming and inheritance and all the other 
lofty, theoretical CS concepts that small script writers, like me, don't 
really need?
