Me and Albert Einstein
by Ainsley Thornock
Walking in my classroom, I saw someone waiting for me. It was ALBERT EINSTEIN!
“I thought you were dead,” I said.
“No, that’s just a myth,” Albert said. “Do you want to go somewhere?” Albert wondered.
My heart started beating as fast as a rocket right then. “Well of course!” I shouted. I was really excited, but I told him “we don’t have a car.”
Albert didn’t hesitate a bit. He said, “I’m a genius, we’ll get a cab.”
“But we have no money because that costs money.” I started to cry.
Albert said, “don’t worry my little one, I brought a lot of money because we need it for the places we’re going to.”
So, we took the first cab we found. We went to Times Square, his monument, the book shop, and we found I Am Albert Einstein on the shelf on sale. He read it to me.
He said “I remember this and this and this and this.”
Then we were trying to get back to school and we got lost! I was scared, but I made a solution to use a map.
“Here it is,” he said, “and here’s a compass that tells you which way to go.”
So we used the map and the compass and we made it back to school in time to go home.
When I got home my mom asked me “what did you do today?”
I said “same old same old.” The rest is mine to know.
