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.
