Scattershootin’ while wondering whatever happened to folks that were once considered “Laid Back” and why is everyone so “Uptight”?

I blame it on the Smartphone and Smart people. Recently (like last week) I made the public declaration that I was now a Millennial. Did I figure why not? Everyone else is making declarations so I needed one. But I have crumbled under the pressure! I could handle being Millennial Kool but the constant need to be updated, upgraded and Smart was just too much. I lost my laid-back and worse…I lost my Happiness.

So now I Happier and dumber than ever!

Which reminds me of a story. See if you can guess which character I identify with… This story is how I see it playing out for me when I get to Heaven.

Einstein dies and goes to Heaven only to be informed that his room is not yet ready. “I hope you will not mind waiting in a dormitory. We are very sorry, but it’s the best we can do and you will have to share the room with others”, he is told by the doorman. Einstein says that this is no problem at all and that there is no need to make such a great fuss. So the doorman leads him to the dorm. They enter and Albert is introduced to all of the present inhabitants.

“See, here is your first roommate. He has an IQ of 180!”
“That’s wonderful!” says Albert. “We can discuss mathematics!”

“And here is your second roommate. His IQ is 150!”
“That’s wonderful!” says Albert. “We can discuss physics!”

“And here is your third roommate. His IQ is 100!”
“That’s wonderful!”, says Albert, “We can discuss the latest plays at the theater!”

Just then another man moves out to capture Albert’s hand and shake it. “I’m your last roommate and I’m sorry, but my IQ is only 80.” Albert smiles back at him and says, “So, where do you think interest rates are headed?”
