You don't meet a lot of people like the Boy

He's a pretty rare character. He has pink hair, he's just 13 and in high school, he's very smart and very funny and he likes to prepare for every contingency. Today he's playing Scrabble with himself. He's not really playing, he's figuring out how to get the highest possible score using weird letters and having them in the right place. So far, he's found that quizzical up at the top of the board can be worth 333 points. That seems to be his favorite find but he's still looking. Will he ever get a chance to use this knowledge. Maybe someday, but the point is, he'll never forget this and will work towards this as a life goal.

He's already read his entire Latin book and knows pretty much everything there is to know in it. Why? Because it's interesting to learn the declensions so he can read Latin books in the original Latin. This is also a goal in his life.

I love this boy with such a full heart that there are times I just can't contain it. He's one of the most interesting persons I've ever met, he thinks of connections that I just don't see, he's so politically astute that it astounds me and yet he plays scrabble with himself just to find winning moves. He's going to make some woman one weird husband.
