Now I, the adult, will answer, Albert Einstein. He’s a genius and a scientist, among other things, and I’ll stop because… well, it’s difficult to explain Einstein’s contributions to someone who still has all his milk teeth intact. But I’ll want you to know a little more about Albert Einstein, so that maybe someday, when you’re ready to sink your permanent teeth into the Theory of Relativity, you’ll also remember that the genius behind the theory hated socks. And maybe you’ll smile, and appreciate the man, not just as an item on a book, but as a regular guy. A very smart, regular guy.
