We acquired this modern version of my childhood passion – the Rubik cube, from Leonardo da Vinci exhibition last year. With two catastrophic results.
Firstly – I found out that the stubborn thing wouldn´t behave anymore in my daft fingers and just won´t oblige and won´t get done. No mater how hard I tried. And of course all my claims that once upon a time I was ruling in the world of Rubik cubes lost all credibility.
Secondly – the damned half done thing ended up in my daughter´s room and after a while mysteriously broke. Just by itself. Just as any other material object that happened to reside in this same room. (One of the unveiled secrets of the universe I suppose)
To prove that I had nothing to do with its destruction I lovingly put it back together. Well, not exactly a cube, but now it is cute.
