The Shiny Quarter

As I haven’t been here the last couple of months, I get to hear all the back stories of the daily Curtis activities. We all know that Curtis can sometimes be ADD (attention deficient disorder) ish. His attention span is that of a gnat. I’ve always thought it was bad, but I never knew just how bad. His co-workers have given him a few nicknames, including ‘Genius Boy of Destruction’ (because he brought down the database… twice), ‘Doc’ (because hes scary smart), and my personal favourite ‘Shiny Quarter’.

They call him Shiny Quarter because he’ll be sitting there working and like a young child will suddenly bounce – randomly – to another topic/issue/thought. This habit is apparently not predicable and can come upon him quite suddenly. I’ve decided that its probably due to the MASSIVE wall of mountain dew cans that gets built up daily at his desk, but hey, who knows.

    Julia and Curtis,

    Don’t worry about Curtis’ ADD. Instead find a way to channel it. Also ditch the Dew, and start getting some exercise. Trust me it’s better in the long run. Plus the women wear spandex in the gym and that’s okay (usually). Stay safe and let me know if you need anything.

    LOL Glad to hear that Iraq hasn’t changed Curtis at all. Miss you both very much. I hate the fact I can’t pick up the phone and call at any given time. But such is the way of life. Things are good here, Giants won the Super Bowl. WooHoo. So take care and write once in a while, send address for care packages. Let us know if you want anything in particular.
    Love Always.
