Here Einstein is in the early years and later, when he got even more interesting. But look at the eyes. Exactly the same.
Einstein was so preoccupied with interesting things that, well, he probably walked into the Ladies bathroom. I heard a story about him once, that reminds me of Kraut. Kraut is also interesting. It is his fault I am a night owl. He was so interesting as a teenager that I couldn't leave and go to bed. Therefore I had a case of terminal sleep deprivation. Now it's a habit.
See how this works? You start with one thought and pretty soon you are galloping off, in a complete different direction.
Back to the story: Einstein was sitting at his desk, visiting with someone and Einstein got thirsty. So he peeled an orange. But his guest was fascinating and their talk was lively and he forgot to eat it. Later, he noticed that he was thirsty. So, he peeled an orange. Then: interesting talk, thirst, orange. By the time he finally realized what he was doing he had seven oranges peeled, and uneaten, on his desk.
Kraut is like that. He gets distracted by interesting things. He once told me he looked a word up in the dictionary and then, because it was surrounded by other interesting words, he didn't get back to what he was doing for a l-o-n-g time. I don't remember for sure but I think it was an hour.
Okay, today's Einstein-ish moment:
The other day I was at Day's Thriftway buying groceries. I ran my card through the terminal. Nothing. I tried again. Nothing. My favorite checker, Shawn, said, "turn it around." I did. Nothing. He took my card and he ran it through. Nothing. He turned it around. Nothing. Then he looked at it, handed it back to me and said, "This is your Border's Reward Card."
I am not alone. My favorite checker is also a member of the Einstein club.
