Almost A Genius
Mrs. C is almost a genius. I’m not sure what the definition of genius is. I say it is any extraordinary ability that cannot be explained by anything other than an innate talent that less than .0001 percent of any other person who ever lived has demonstrated. It is also an unexplained ability that serves some useful purpose to mankind.
Mrs. C’s mind works in wondrous ways. She notices things that no one else ever notices and she remembers things that no one else would remember. She has an innate talent that less than .0001 percent of any human has ever demonstrated. Unfortunately, her talent serves no useful purpose to mankind.
Genius? Just a little bit short.
If I move a piece of paper on the table by just a minuscule amount, she will notice.
“What were you looking for downstairs?”
“Last week’s receipt from the grocery store was moved…what were you looking for?”
“Ah, my keys…and HOLY CRAP, how did you notice?” Amazing, but of no use to mankind.
The other night we were watching “Wheel of Fortune”. Mrs. C remembered the contestants.
“This is a re-run, I remember the dude with the long hair.”
OK, nothing remarkable about that. Then at the end, the dude with the long hair won and was going for the big money…plus he had the MILLION DOLLAR slice.
When the letters of his final puzzle were put up they were
_ _ G E
_ _ _ OR
Mrs. C immediately blurted out, “HUGE FAVOR!”
She was correct.
“Did you know that, or did you just remember it?”
“I’m not sure.”
Then Pat Sajak opened the prize and it was $34,000 not the one million dollars.
“The million was with the “stars” in the wheel.”
She was correct.
“I guess I just remembered that too.”
Amazing, but of no real use to mankind.
