My niece is one of those children that instantly causes you to have an inferiority complex. She is the typical pig-tailed 11 year old with black rimmed eyeglasses that you might see in a G rated Disney movie. She is rarely without some kind of text book in her possession. Just last week she was attempting to educate me and my wife on the use of mouse embryonic stem cells. After the first 8 words, she lost my attention. My wife, on the other hand, exhibited a rather profound level of interest. Consequently, I really feel like the town idiot for sure.
