Angelo’s early days were marked
with a dose of low self esteem.  

People knew who he was,
and where he came from.  

That all changed one day
in tenth grade,
when his math teacher made
a simple statement:

“After looking over the last batch of I. Q. tests,
it seems we will have to pay closer attention to Angelo.”

That really ticked Angelo off.  
After class, Angelo confronted his math teacher,
and told him to please keep his low I. Q. to himself,
and not announce it to the rest of the math class.

Angelo’s math teacher,
didn’t even look up
from the test papers
he was studying.  

He simply stated to Angelo.

“What I meant Angelo,
was that you have a very high I. Q.,
it’s well above 135.  
You’re a very smart boy.”

Angelo was on his way.

Thanks dear Ida,

You are correct.

I hope that you are doing well, I'm doing fine, and so is everyone here.
