In second grade, my friend Eric and I were well ahead of the class in arithmetic, so our teacher gave us our own class within a class at a table in the back of the room. As if this wasn’t enough to earn the scorn and derision of every other kid in school, Eric wore a set of “problem-solving antennae” that he made using aluminum foil and wire. Once he had secured the device atop his head, we both would lean forward across the table until our foreheads touched. This was so that I could also receive answers from the antennae.
It was wonderful. We were very happy.
