This is the first of my new desk buddies - I'm still waiting for the kitty and the new laptop. Albert Einstein is an old joke with J. and I. When we were young and together, he didn't think I was terribly bright – ‘hot’ yes, smart? Not so much.

One day in my apartment he noticed a book about/by Albert Einstein and thought to himself – “Now what could that be doing here? Someone must have given it to her… or it’s a doorstop, that’s it, she uses it for a doorstop.”

In our second time around, he has come to the conclusion that perhaps I’m not so very dumb – but still hot! ☺ He brought this action figure (I do so love that there is an action figure of Albert) home for me last week. Is that romantic or what? Isn’t life grand?

Too cute, well the idea. Albert? Not so much. Were you playing dumb all those years ago? He must have been dumb to miss it.

Sort of a tacit apology? I guess it works, but guys can be so dumb sometimes can't they? Especially the cute ones.

Hmmm... the first time you were together; was it a lot of chemistry and not much talking??? Hm?

I'm having a hard time imagining someone not picking up on your intellect!

Indeed :-)
thank you for coming by.

Not playing dumb! He was 23 - the brain is not fully formed until we are in our 30's - I believe that. He's sure not dumb - just flooded with testosterone at the time I think! ;-)
Thank you for coming by.

An apology and an ongoing joke now. Yes, especially the cute ones! :-)
Thank you for coming by.

Yep. Yep. Yep. :-) not so much talking a lot NOW too! :-) :-)
