No, I'm sure his dad told him, (credit stealer) but then I realized that adults do the same thing, but instead of the grammatically incorrect "I just knowed it," it graduates to, "I read it somewhere"
Once you give a name to the source of all your brilliance, it's not as romantic, smart, or impressive. If I for some reason know there are 192 nations in the United Nations and someone asks me how I know that... I'm not going to tell them it was on my cereal box that morning. Even if I learned it in a class. Then my genius suddenly becomes my teacher's or school's glory, and I'm just the messenger. Forget that. I want it. I miraculously just know that bit of information, ok? I'm sure it was implanted in my brain after my mind was constructed by NASA.
So no titles, no teachers, no episodes of Grey's Anatomy. This is how I want it: all my friends and family thinking everything I know to have just spontaneously appeared in my brain because I read so much that I don't even remember where it was that I read it, I just know that I knowed it somehow.
