Piano Lessons

"What are these things, Mrs. Marshall?

"Well, they are the pieces to six different three dimensional wooden puzzles all mixed up together. I think it would take a real puzzle genius to put them back together again."

"A genius?", my student asked in a wondering tone. "I don't know any geniuses except Brainy Smurff."

"Who's Brainy Smurff?"

"Who's Brainy Smurff? You mean you don't know who Brainy Smurff is?"

Humbled, I shook my head no.

"He's the smartest Smurff there is."

"Oh, so he could put them back together again."


Why didn't I think of that?
