Enhance? A short-short story about genetically enhancing intelligence.

A May 22, 2017 New York Times headline reads: “In ‘Enormous Success,’ Scientists Tie 52 Genes to Human Intelligence."
A week later, the Journal of Cellullar Bioechemistry chronicled the enormous progress and potential in gene editing.

Such research suggests that in a decade or two, parents may have the option of having their sperm and eggs genome-edited to ensure their child has high or at least normal intelligence.

As my contribution today, I offer a short-short story that explores one possible implication.
