A quote: “Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.” ~ George S. Patton

I’ll start with a story…

*********************************

“Ma!!!”

I knew that shriek and sighed. It didn’t mean blood was flowing or the house was on fire. That could be fixed with a snap of my fingers.

I wondered who it was this time – Ruth? Tobby?

Mrs. Grundy stood on my porch, gripping the hand of a sobbing five-year-old child.

“Joshua?”

“Ma! I was aiming at Ruth!”

Grundy angrily gestured back at her house, now standing neatly on its roof, “Elizabeth, if this boy has ruined my baking …!!”

I waved her off. This was going to take my wand, my hat and a call to the Council.

********************************

Now, it’s your turn.

    Instead of just gaming, he had used some of his basement computer time to learn programming. Success as a day trader provided him the funds to dabble in real estate and acquire an industrial size 3D printer. Early morning after a marathon gaming session, he selected a lot from his portfolio, pasted a picture of a house into his printer program, and crashed until afternoon. After a “breakfast” of Mountain Dew and cold pizza, he saw that he had pasted the picture upside down. Unruffled, he labeled it art, multiplied the price by five and went back to his game.

    “And here we are at the final exhibit!” the man crowed. “Notice the structural defiance of normal architecture coupled with a traditional log cabin look. Truly, the artist knew that this piece would bring on controversy at challenging accepted norms!”
    I rolled my eyes. “More like he was on a three day tequila bender and had a moment of ‘Wouldn’t it be cool if’.”
    The guide glared. “I have studied this piece for five years, young man,” he said in contempt. “What credentials do you have?”
    I shrugged. “The designer is my uncle and I was there during said bender.”
