“The World’s Smartest Man thing is bullshit, you know,” Jen says to Scott later that evening, when she’s working on some Lawyer Stuff and he’s looking for something to eat. The kitchen is quiet, and the rest of the building isn’t. Some of the children are playing hide-and-seek, but there’s nowhere to hide in here. She’s got a spoon in her mouth from the yoghurt she’s eating and she’s staring murderously at a sheet of paper, but she looks up and quirks her mouth up a bit when Scott doesn’t say anything back.
“You’ve met him,” Scott says.
“I’ve met a man who I’m surprised remembers to smile when something pleases him, yeah,” Jen says. “Law school teaches you stuff, though. Like. Everybody’s plenty smart and everybody’s fuckin’ stupid.”
Scott never went to college so he never learnt any such thing, but he doesn’t really want to say that to Jen.
