Reading a story about a boy genius, I wonder why it is that the 'extraordinary' so frequently skips over the 'ordinary.'

What stupidities and sorrows attend on the apparently-joyful wonders of genius?

What difficulties raise their heads for the winner of some enormous lottery?

Perhaps such questions are held at arm's length because what is 'extraordinary' seems extraordinary ... and that is delightful.
