Busy July 4th and Adora Svitak

Posted by Xun  |  1 comment


We had a busy July 4th. We went to the millennium park, made worms using colorful beads, glued eyes on the worms' head. Emma and I got "totally, completely wet" (her words) splashing water at the crown fountain. Then we had all sorts of foods at the Taste of Chicago. At night, we watched the fireworks. When the first set of fireworks shoot up in the sky, Emma said "it was like colorful sphaghetti".

...

Again read about this little child literary prodigy Adora Svitak, who "types 70 words per minute, reads two to three books per day and writes about 100 short stories and poems per year". What is the formula to make a genius like that? Why I never have that kind of luck?

Fortunately this world is still full of fools like me, instead of genius like Adora, otherwise I have to do street cleaning for a living.
