A Story!

“The new Einstein”

In the summer of 2006, I was in Athens, in order to visit my uncle, Sebastian, who is a very good scientist. One day, he took me to his laboratory to show me his new invention.

It was a big, purple hat, like the ones witches wear, with lots of yellow stars.
“Could you, please, try my invention?” he asked.
I put it on and within seconds I felt so dizzy that I had to sit down. I felt like my head was about to burst. My uncle looked as if he wanted to cry with joy. He was very curious and nervous to see the results of his invention.

So, he gave me a piece of paper with the most difficult mathematical calculations. I solved them faster than any computer. It was a hat which gave you amazing mathematical abilities. The invention worked exactly as Sebastian had expected. He was very proud of himself and satisfied, as well.
“You can keep it, if you want” he said.

Since then, I have been the best student at maths. That’s why everyone calls me “The new Einstein”. Everyone, that is, expect the scientist who made it possible.
