I knew that!

When I was about 7 or 8 we got an art project in the form of a school competition to make papier mashe heads. Everyone else in the class got a round balloon but mine was a long thin one. I started to cover the thing in strips of newspaper and left it that day looking like a huge sausage. When I came home from school there was an item on the news about Easter Island and I saw the heads. A quick trip to the library found me a book about them and with a piece of board for the base my head was turned into a model of an Easter Island head. I won the competition and after I was given the prize I overheard one of the teachers asking another about the heads and what Easter Island was. The second teacher replied "You better ask him (me) he seems to know everything about them". I could not get through the doorways that day I was so swelled up with pride.
