Brian O’Brien, the Brightest and Most Brilliant of Professor Assessor’s Students

 

 

Brian O’Brien, wasn’t always the brightest and most brilliant of Professor Assessor’s students. When all the other students were studying hard to get a pass, Brian O’Brien was fast asleep, snoring loudly at the back of the class. Brian O’Brien was the one who was always out instead of doing his homework, no wonder that he never easily got a pass ! Brian O’Brien had a pile of books – he could only just about be seen, when Professor Assessor came to look ! Professor Assessor got out his cane – and made Brian O’Brien look at algebra again. Professor Assessor kept Brian in detention so long, that he made sure he got all his answers right – and soon, none of them were wrong ! The next time when Brian O’Brien took a test, his marks were so high that they flew through the sky and headed West. He got so many grade A’s so fast, that you could hardly see them as they went flying past. Soon, Brian O’Brien always came first – and he was no longer sleeping Zzz’s much worse. Brian O’Brien had a buddy with whom he decided that he’d like to study. One day, they decided to have a race, to see who in a maths competition could get top place. After half an hour, Brian O’Brien, was two marks ahead … so much steam came out of his ears, that in his face, he went red. Brian O’Brien turned the pages of his textbook so quick … that soon, he’d finished the entire Encyclopaedia Britannica and and he only every got examination ticks. When Brian O’Brien a letter to his mother started to write – he was so bright that he didn’t need a light ! In music lessons, his brilliance was utterly amazing … the audience filled an entire auditorium whenever he started to sing ! Brian O’Brien’s genius shone – and within minutes he’d got his whole homework done ! Brian O’Brien even won an award, and now he studies so much that he never gets bored !
