I am going to have to start a new series for the quotes/questions of the day.
Todays question brought to you by Bellevue Mental Hospital, which has apparently opened their doors and said, "Who wants to go to Cannon Beach today?"
Everyone must have said Yes.
Here it is...
"Wow these are fantastic. Were they really done by Dr. Seuss?"
"Yes they were. He did some remarkable work that was just for him...blah blah blah..."
"So it was THE Dr. Seuss? The same Seuss that wrote the books?"
"The very same Seuss. He was a painter in his spare time. Just what he did for fun."
"That's amazing. So did you paint these?
/A long silence with a blank stare..."Excuse me?"
"The Dr. Seuss works, did you paint them?"
/Still staring at her in disbelief. "No, Dr. Seuss painted them."
"So he was a real person?"
/Still staring, only now my mouth is hanging open, wishing I could shoot lighting from my eyes.
I would now like to thank the tele-marketer who called and ended this conversation. I never thought I would say that in a million years.
I don't expect people to all be geniuses, but come on.
