I’ve been AWOL for a few days refining our new clinic website and dealing with various demons and dragons showing up on the doorstep. One of the things about working with links and webby things are the rabbit holes I end up falling into. Somehow a YouTube of the Muppets Movie lead me this one: An interview with Jim Parsons, the actor who plays Sheldon Cooper, a physicist, on the TV show The Big Bang Theory.
Sheldon Cooper, quirky and brilliant, is fascinating – an irritating, compelling portrait of rational over-drive welded to self-defined realities that are seemingly impervious to the salve of relationships. In the interview, Parsons explains how the character works and its power as a lesson in modelling tolerance.
What? Irritating people as teachers?
We should look in the mirror. Bazinga!
Have a wonderful weekend!
