Intellectual?


At a reception, a few days ago, a younger friend – doubtlessly trying to be kind – introduced me to a senior banker and his wife and said “David is a real intellectual.”  And the result ... during the ensuing conversation, the banker’s wife asked me , “David, so you don’t do anything?”

  2. What a quick-witted, sharp-eyed woman that banker`s wife must be!
    Her question - if question it was - is probably the most precise, if somewhat down-to-earth, description of intellectualism that I have yet heard of.
